In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

Beside the houses already mentioned, one of the most important and extensive, was that known as the " Mitre," standing at comer of Dial Lane.
