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.

Combs Ford Volunteers

Combs Ford Volunteers

closed 1913

opened about 1861

Poplar Hill

grid reference TM 050 577 (approximate location)

The pub was owned by Catchpole & Son from 1866 until its closure in 1913.

The former Volunteers was demolished to allow an extension to the adjacent Hubbard's butchers' shop in 1980. That was itself demolished in the 1990s and has been replaced by modern housing.
