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.

After eight years closed, the Rose reopened in April 2019. The old interior has been completely ripped-out and the pub has been refurbished inside and out.
There are four lines for Real Ales (two will be in use initially) and there may also be guest ales in polypins. There's a separate restaurant area (the landlady already has a successful catering business in Bramford) and a nice outside drinking area.
