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 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.

Elmswell Fox & Goose?

Elmswell Fox & Goose?

Thought to have been a pub but there is a degree of doubt.

grid reference TL 968 638

This is now called Fox and Goose cottages. Although it's marked as the "Fox & Goose" on old OS maps as far back as 1884, it's not actually marked as a pub (whereas other nearby pubs are marked as pubs. So it had probably already closed by then.

Fox & Goose is listed in all of the censuses from 1841 to 1911, excepting 1851, but none show it as a pub. There's no record of it as a pub at the Elmswell History Group website, so it may be that this is a red herring and it was never actually a pub.

It can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century.interactive map
