Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. 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 difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Palgrave Swan

Palgrave Swan

Closed 1920-1970

Lion Rd

grid reference TM 115 783

The Swan was built late in the 16th century, with 20th century alterations.

We understand that the Swan was the last of Palgrave's pubs to close. The date is uncertain, though it was certainly still open in 1968 (the latest licensing records we've seen so far).

The remnants of a tiled sign on the section of building nearest the road show that this was a Lacon's pub.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
