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.

The White Hart is shown on the 1967 OS map but appears to have gone by the 1985 sheet, so presumably closed between those dates. It's now residential.
The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
