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.

This former Inn and Posting House was destroyed by a fire on January 1st 1922.

The inn is also reported as being at Market Hill. In the 16th century this inn (then called the Crown) formed three sides around a great courtyard and was frequently used for mayoral banquets.

It was also reported at 38 King Street from at least 1871 until at least 1916.

It was formerly a Commercial Hotel & Posting House and billiard rooms.

The hotel is shown here on an old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
