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.

Handford Hall

grid reference TM 149 445 (approximate location)

The Crooked Billet is described as standing "close to Seven Arches Bridge"; a predecessor to the present London Road bridge over the western branch of the Gipping. Handford Hall.

It seems to have been roughly where the present Sainsbury's store stands.

Another inn of this name stood in Great Whip Street.

The old bridge it was close to can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
