In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. 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 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.

Poplar Hill

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 That was itself demolished in the 1990s and has been replaced by modern housing.
