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.

Real Ale is sold here.
Bridge Rd, CB8 8SP
grid reference TL 696 645
Modern local facing village green. Close to a medieval pack horse bridge.
Formerly a Greene King pub called the King's Head, this pub was bought in 2012 by local resident Philip Turner, who has upgraded it and renamed it the Packhorse Inn in 2013. The pub was well-renovated at the time, but sadly the distinctive and attractive brick-patterned exterior was lost in the process. (See the gallery for before and after photographs).
