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.

The Crown was built early in the 16th century, with early 17th century additions. It's now called Crown House.
Although the Listed Buildings register says a house in Shop Street was also a pub called the Crown, we think this may be inaccurate. Certainly old maps show a Crown beerhouse in this location and it changes from a beerhouse to "Crown House" at about the time the licensing record shows it closing.
