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.

Recently redecorated with two handpumps on the bar and now under new management. The current building apparently dates from 1888, but is on the site of an older inn.

New management moved on in 2019 and we understand the pub is currently closed again.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about 1904 (interactive map)
