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.
Real Ale is sold here.

A phoenix risen from the ashes, the Globe reopened in 2013 after a 2-year closure. Serving one well kept regular beer and up to three changing guests, it is now a thriving local where beer and conversation dominate. Live music every other Saturday night and live afternoon sessions every other Sunday. There is a separate pool room at the rear and a newly refurbished garden for Summer drinking. No food is served.
The pub was built in the 18th century, though the façade dates from the 19th.

The building dates from 1695, re-fronted in white brick early in the 19th century, with a hipped roof. It was originally a L-shaped building incorporating numbers 11 and 12. The conversion of this section to an inn was probably around 1880.
Reopened summer 2013 after at least two years closed.
