Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

The license was allowed to expire on August 19th, 1911 as part of a scheme to reduce the number of alcohol licenses. The building is now residential. Old maps suggest the pub filled the entire building in our photo.

The Chaise & Pair is shown, though not named, on this old OS map from about the start of the 20th century (larger map). It's named on other old maps.
