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.

It isn't entirely clear how much of the building pictured was the pub. It may just have been the cream-coloured section to the left of our photo, it may have been the longer grey section or it may have been the whole building.

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.

A chaise literally means chair and usually is an old reference to people who could afford their own carriage and horses.
