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.
Moulton Packhorse Inn
Moulton Packhorse Inn

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).
