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.

Swilland Chequers alehouse

Swilland Chequers alehouse

Closed pre-1840

Shown as "Chequers alehouse" on a farm map of 1804. The field to the west was Chequer Field in 1792, so it is likely that the alehouse goes back at least that far. The field was Chequers Field in 1840 (tithe map), and the name continued into the mid-20th century when three fields here (including Chequers Field) were amalgamated. It looks as though the beerhouse had closed by c.1840 - on the tithe map the house (item 24) is called "Old Chequers Cottage".from Steve Podd
