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 before 1871?.

This location is shown on OS maps as "Old Trowel Farm" even as early as 1885, so must have closed a long time ago. The 1871 census entry doesn't appear to list a pub, which seems to confirm this conjecture.
Even today though, there's a sign by the road: "The Old Trowel".
