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.
Closed about 1975.
28 St Helen's St
grid reference TM 167 445
Demolished soon after closure for road widening and commercial redevelopment.
The building in our picture is a modern replacement of the pub, constructed about 1929, which appears very different to earlier pictures seen, dating from 1910. The pub was rebuilt about the same time that the Regent theatre was constructed nearby.
The pub is shown (though not named) on this old OS map from the 1890s. larger map
