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.

This may be an older name for the Swan, which originally stood on Westerfield Green in a building now known as the Slade. This building closed as a pub in 1829 following the enclosure of the Green.
