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.
Closed 1963 or 64.

No application for renewal of the license was lodged in 1964, giving us a fair idea when it closed. The building is now residential.
It isn't clear whether the pub took up all or part of the building. The home on the left is called "Wheatsheaf Cottage", whereas that on the right has a sign saying "The Wheatsheaf". Old maps don't make things clear, though they seem to suggest that if it was only part of the building, it was probably the section on the left.
It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
