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.

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.
