In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

In 1912 it's listed at Royal plain (facing Esplanade) and described as a family hotel.

In 1916 this hotel was the home of the Royal Arch Chapter of Freemasons and the Unity Lodge of Freemasons.
