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.

An attractive and lively two bar pub in the village centre, close to the church. An area to the rear of the lounge bar is used for dining. Pool and other pub games are available in the public bar.

The building is believed to date from the 17th century, though many alterations have been made since.

The pub was observed in April 2018 to be closed and undergoing major works. We were later informed that it should finally reopen late in the summer of 2019, but this date has slipped, apparently due to problems renovating the old building.

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