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.

Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.

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.

Home of the King's Head brewery since 1996. A single bar with large cosy inglenook fireplace. The large carved timbers indicate its history as part of a larger complex dating from around 1530. A friendly drinking house atmosphere has evolved with food available at the weekend only. A fully enclosed rear garden with a covered patio area, lawns and play equipment. Late May bank holiday beer festival is established and popular.

It has a long established reputation for live music. Every Wednesday is busking night and there is live music most weekends.

Cyclists are welcome; please take your bike round the back of the pub.

The pub has a toilet for disabled customers.

Built in the 14th century as a wool warehouse, the building was converted into a pub in the 16th century.
