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 difficult 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.
This is a restaurant, so it's possible that drinks are only available here to diners. Please check before visiting.

The name, which as far as we can ascertain is unique, apparently comes from an Elizabethan filled pancake. To make a Bacon Froize Take eight Eggs well beaten, & a little Cream, & a little Flour, & beat them well together to be like other Batter, then fry very thin slices of Bacon, & pour some of this over, then fry it, & turn the other side, & pour more upon that, so fry it & serve it to the Table.
