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.

Wickham Market Chaise & Pair

Wickham Market Chaise & Pair

closed 19th August 1911

Lower St

grid reference TM 303 563

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.

The Chaise & Pair can be seen here on an OS map of 1884.

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