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.

An earlier beerhouse on this site, owned by Robert Worledge was destroyed by fire in June 1885 together with several other local properties. It was subsequently rebuilt by Oliver John Parker and soon after occupied by James Lillistone. It was called the Phoenix from about 1890. The pub was also known as the "hole in the wall" due to its small size.
