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.

A timber framed building with an old beamed bar which has been a pub (on and off) since 1544.

It was purchased in February 2012 by Calvors Brewery of Coddenham Green. It sells a wide range of locally-sourced food & drink - including of course Calvors' own high-quality lagers and ales. They announced in June 2020 that the pub was closing and had been put on the market.

Historically also listed at Station Yard.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about 1903 (interactive map)
