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.

Thwaite Cock

Thwaite Cock

Closed pre-1840

Norwich Rd

grid reference TM 116 684

According to the Listed Buildings Register, Willow Hall was, at one time, an inn.

The building dates from the 15th century with many 17th century alterations. It was renovated from a state of dereliction in the 1970s.

According to a book called the 'The Norwich Road' by Charles G Harper*** and published 1901 (Harper was a prolific writer and illustrator):

the 'High House' was once a coaching and posting inn ... and now a farmstead ... in former days called the 'Cock'.

The 'Cock,' save that its sign is gone, still remains much as it was, to show a later generation what manner of place the roadside inn was in days of yore.'
