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

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. 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.

Oldest building in town (dates from 1470). Now Grade II listed with a rare Crown Post roof. Good ambiance and beer quality in the three rooms. The pub sign is a picture of the Diana, the landlady.

This is one of only three remaining mediaeval buildings in Haverhill; it survived the great fire of 1667, which destroyed most of the town. (One of the other two survivors is also a pub - the Rose & Crown)***
