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

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. 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 2009 (Aug).

grid reference TM 295 801

This was a large rural pub with 'Twister' in the main bar. There were hitching rails in car-park and a child friendly garden.

The pub closed in August 2009 with much local acrimony reported in the local media. It was converted into tearooms, but we noted in June 2015 that it's now a B&B.

The present building replaced another pub of the same name nearby (see the gallery); we don't know when, but it must have been after 1903, as a large-scale OS map of that year shows no buildings where the later pub was.
