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.
This is a hotel, so it's possible that drinks are only available here to residents or diners. Please check before visiting.

Former residence Charles II now used as a hotel. Today it has a lounge bar, a resident's lounge, 12 bedrooms with en suite facilities and a restaurant.
In 1895 a gentleman of rather dubious nature (known as Gordon Chetwynd) sold what was known as Rutland Cottage to the 5th Earl of Cadogan. The Earl numbered amongst his closest friends Edward Price of Wales, later King Edward VII. Reputedly Miss Lilly Langtry entertained the king within the premises; legend suggests the one-time existence of a secret tunnel from here to King Charles' palace in the High Street.
