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.

The Swan retains many exposed beams with a pleasant airy atmosphere. In 1544 two earlier cottages were replaced by the present building, then known as Hatfield House. It opened as a pub in 1620.

A fire in 1781 destroyed a brew-house, stable, granary, old parlour and bed chambers. The pub was then closed for 10 years.
