In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. 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 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.

The Maypole closed in January 2012, having been on the market for at least three years, with plans to reopen May/June of that year.

Reported (January 2014) still closed, it was observed to be boarded up by May 2014. The site was marketed "for residential development", so it seems unlikely the pub will reopen. It has now been sold and works have been observed to be ongoing.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
