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.

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.

Otley Ginger Beer Shop

Otley Ginger Beer Shop

Closed 1840-1920

Chapel Rd

grid reference TM 206 557

This is now called Kersey Cottage.

Tithe Map 1840: 372 cottage, owned by Mary Ann Goodwin; tenant William Bennett, whose main profession was shoemaker.

Steven Podd reports that in the 1841 census the premises are described as a ‘ginger beer shop’. (but from the transcriptions seen, the word ‘ginger’ must be obscure in the original document, and may have transcribed as ‘Stings’

Bennett seems to have moved to the White Horse around 1844-6 (hence innkeeper trade in 1851).
