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.

Closed 1926 or 1927

West View House High St

grid reference TM 075 715

Now West View House, this was build around 1600, with some rebuilding a century later and alterations in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The license wasn't renewed in 1927, so the pub presumably closed about 1926 or 1927.

NOTE: With the death of Frederick, Prince of Wales in 1751 his eldest on Prince George became heir to British throne (and crowned King George the third in 1760).
