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.

This was a lively and friendly establishment with two bars and separate restaurant. It had six en-suite rooms (b&b) and a safe garden with children's play area.

Although Punch Taverns originally wanted to demolish the pub to redevelop it, permission was refused. It has since been converted into a Co-Op; one of many pubs destroyed by that organisation.

The pub dates back to the 18th century or earlier. In 1899 it was sold, along with its brewery for £92-5-5. It can be seen here on an old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
