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.

Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.

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.

The Fox & Hounds is also listed at Bury Road.

It was originally called the Crown and the first mention of an inn of that name was back in 1628. The name had changed to the Fox & Hounds by 1768.

The building was demolished for retail development. It was on the site of what used to be the Co-Op in Bury Street and is now occupied by Tall Orders coffee shop and St Elizabeth's Hospice charity shop.

Another pub called the Crown opened in 1855 and can still be visited today.

The earliest known owner is John Wage. It was owned by his family until about 1680. In the 1730s William Bunn is listed as an apothecary and brewer here. The property contained a brewery and slaughter house in the mid-18th century.

Pelham Aldrich purchased it in 1768…
