In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.
A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 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.
opened 1860 circa
101 High St
grid reference TM 551 934
It would appear that a beer house of this name listed before 1860 in a different building but was still located nearby in the High Street (south end).
This property was also for a short time an integral part of the Ship & Railway tavern before being separated as a separate business, called the Ship, in about 1860.
Later it may have been replaced by a new development called the Albion Stores.
The pub at this address was called the Ship until at least 1874 and Albion Stores by 1891. The 1881 census information has been included in Albion Stores, but could refer to this pub.
