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

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. 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.

Oakley Green Man

Oakley Green Man

Closed post-1970.

Lower Oakley Rd

grid reference TM 165 779

The Green Man's closure date is unknown, but the most recent Eye licensing records we've seen show it still open at least as late as 1967. The building dates from the 16th and 17th centuries.

In 1865 & 1888 it was listed at the Street.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1903 (larger map)
