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.

Once a coaching inn, the front room was used as a restaurant, with a bar and patio to the rear.

The pub has closed and developers want to demolish it and replace it with homes. There have been local protests against this plan, but permission was granted in November 2016. However, when visited in July 2019, it was observed that the building was still standing and boarded-up.

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