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.
Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.
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.
Hundon Thatchers' Arms
Hundon Thatchers' Arms
grid reference TL 737 488
The pub was included in the sale of the Kedington Brewery estate in 1883.
The map location and photo show a building which appears in the Listed Buildings Register as "Thatcher's Hall (Formerly listed as The Thatchers)". This may be the old pub, though this may be contradicted by the 1901 census (see the historical section).
Unfortunately, due to the amount of greenery around the building, it's not possible to get a decent photograph of it without trespassing.
Hundon: The Thatcher's Arms
The House contains: Tap room, Parlour, Passage, Cellar, Grocer's Shop, Bake-Office, Dairy and 3 Bed Rooms.
The Out-buildings comprise: a large Barn, timber-built and thatched Stable, Cowhouse and Piggeries. 4 acres of pasture.
Occupied by Mr. Thomas Fitch.Details of pub premises belonging to the Kedington Brewery estate sold, along with the brewery buildings, by auction, July 13th 1883***
The 1901 census lists the pub at schedule number 52 north of the Red Lion, schedule number 36, on the east side of The Street (now North Street). This seems to contradict our suggested location. Though old OS maps show very few buildings north of the Red Lion, so perhaps there's some ambiguity?
