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 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.
