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.

A popular small, multi-roomed real ale bar with no music and no games machines. The conservatory to the rear of the pub creates an airy space in contrast to the cosy bar areas and leads out to the pretty garden.

Only two handpumps, but don't be fooled; there's an extensive range of well-kept Real Ales served direct from casks in the taproom. Look at the blackboards above the bar for a list of what's currently available. Regular favourites such as Adnams and Woodforde's are to be found alongside a changing range of ales from around the region and the country. There's also a small but carefully chosen range of Belgian bottled ales.

The pub regularly stocks four or five real ciders…
