In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. 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 of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

This popular roadside pub has a large modernised interior with a separate restaurant. There's also a spacious garden.

A Victorian (and early 20th century) brewery was also located close to this pub, perhaps providing its name?
