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.
Real Ale is sold here.

A former 16th century courthouse converted to a pub during the 18th century, though still used for the petty sessions after conversion, these were reported to be held in the Crown Inn in 1766.
It was renovated during the summer of 2013 and now stocks beer from Brewshed brewery (which now owns it).
