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.

Stone St, IP7 6DN
grid reference TM 017 437
In July 2012 the pub reverted to its original name after a few years trading as the Donkey (its long time nickname).
After opening and closing a few times, it closed again for the last time early in 2013. The building was converted into a carpet showroom, which itself has since closed.
The pub is shown (as an un-named beerhouse) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
