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

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 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.

A134, CO6 4NX

grid reference TL 955 357

Closed on 2 Jan 2018 - future uncertain. Well furbished lounge bar & restaurant. Disabled toilet.

Indications are that it's unlikely to reopen, as planning permission for change of use has been submitted.

A large fire broke out at this pub on March 26th 2020. At present we don't know how bad the damage is.

It's shown on this old OS map from about 1902 (larger map)

The building on this map appears different to today's, so evidently it was rebuilt at some time.
