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.

This may be the only pub with this name in the country.
An estate pub which opened on November 22, 1963, the day of President Kennedy's assassination
It closed in 2018 and plans have been put forward to convert it into an arts centre, though there is also the possibility of demolition and replacement with housing.
In the June 1982 edition of Last Orders*** it was reported that this pub was then owned by Tolly Cobbold.
According to Alfred Hedges' 1976 book, "Inns and Inn Signs of Norfolk and Suffolk", the sign at the time
depicts on one side a palomino pony with an attractive young lady on its back, and on the other a horse in the circus ring.
