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.

Metfield Red House

Metfield Red House

Closed 1840-1920

The Street

grid reference TM 294 804

A beerhouse is shown at this location on the 1884 OS map. It doesn't appear on the 1905 or 1928 maps so presumably closed between 1901 (the date of the last landlord entry found) and that date. It was certainly closed by 1909, as the Rate book of that year lists it as "Late PH".

The building at this location has a sign, "The Red House". The beerhouse probably only took up a small part of the building, but it isn't clear which, though the map seems to imply it was somewhere in the middle.

The Red House can be seen here on an old OS map.
