Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. 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 as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

This may be confused with a nearby pub of the same name.

It's not shown on the 1886 OS map but was well established by 1902 and also offered easy access to nearby attractions including Belle View park, Gunton cliff and concerts at the Sparrow's Nest gardens (10 minutes away).

It's listed in Royal Plain in 1911.

Footnote

Sparrows Nest gardens were bought by the corporation in 1897 from the Davey family. The house, orginially built for Robert Sparrow, was converted into tea rooms. During the Edwardian era this was a popular venue for afternoon concerts during the summer months. A theatre subsequently built and used at the location for many years was closed in 1988 and subsequently demolished.
