In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.
A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 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.

In mid-November 2015 the EADT reported that a planning application to convert the Poacher to residential use had been lodged. This has since been granted and the pub closed at the beginning of 2017.
The Poacher was an absolute gem! It had only been a pub since 1979, having been a shop previously. The internal timbering created a timeless atmosphere.
There was occasional live music.
