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.

In 1932 and 1939 a separate beer retailer is listed at 55 Ann Street, which is an adjacent (adjoining?) building. The landlords were Frederick Finch and Frederick James Finch junior in 1932, and just Frederick James Finch junior (See historical section).

It's now residential.

New flats at the back include the Duke of Sussex in their name.

At a Petty Sessions hearing on 29 September 1860 the Duke of Sussex, Ann Street, St. Matthews was refused a new spirit licence. Out of the twenty four applications only three establishments were granted licences.
