In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.
However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. 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 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.
Thought to have been a pub but there is a degree of doubt.

It is understood that this building (or possibly part of it) was a pub at some time in the distant past. A sign on the building just says "The Pigeons", so perhaps that was its name.
No mention of a pub here appears in any of the 20th century licensing records we've seen and the 1909 Rates book mentions the house by name but without mentioning it being licensed, so if it was a pub, it was before this time. Similarly, no definitive pub appears on any OS map as early as 1882, so if it was a pub, it was a long time ago.
Pigeon Lane appears on old maps as "Upper Street" and was apparently once the main street in Washbrook.
