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.

I have a copy Will from 1689 by my 9th Great/Grandfather James Dearing (or Deering), bequeathing the “Golden Lyon” to his infant grandson Dearing Dansie, via a life interest to the testator’s daughter and son-in-law. James died shortly afterwards. Within 30 years, Dearing Dansie had moved full time to Castle Hedingham and I do not know what became of the family’s interest in the pub after that. However, Dearing’s son Deering also became a victualler, as did his great grandson Crown Dansie and others in the family.from Ian Jones

The building has since been demolished.
