In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.
Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. 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 between 2013 and 2015?.

The precise closure date is uncertain, but was probably after 2013 and before 2015. Now a B&B.
It was a cosy, unspoilt pub with heavily beamed ceilings. Known to date back at least to 1793, when the Bury & Norwich Post reported a meeting of the Glemsford Association at the inn.
The pub is shown (but unnamed) on this old OS map from about 1924 (larger map)
