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.

Burnt Oak, CO7 6TL

grid reference TM 077 343

A 400 year old pub which was claimed to have a friendly ghost. Located close to Flatford Mill.

It was refurbished during the summer of 2013 to a high contemporary standard and featured a small main bar area with large spacious dining spaces.

It closed mid-2016. In March 2017 the EADT reported that planning permission to change the building into a café, shop and home. This was opposed by the local community, who put together a bid to lease the property. Unfortunately, in mid-March, planning permission for conversion was granted.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
