In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.
A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 lockdown. 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 terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

The conversation got out of hand with Carter threatening "corporal punishment" upon Fullers head. Fuller took objection to the threat and punched Carter in the mouth.Bury & Norwich Post, June 28th 1870** (when Mr Carter was the landlord)
