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.

Currently closed - may reopen?

Bramford Rd, IP8 3DA

grid reference TM 122 449

The pub has been known for food for many years and a large restaurant area dominates the interior. The name derives from a local legend about a hermit who lived in nearby woods when the pub was built early in the 16th century.

The pub closed suddenly on January 15th 2020. At present its future is uncertain.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
