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.

opened 16th century

High St, CO10 8LN

grid reference TL 782 515

This characterful 16th century pub still offers traditional games and first class food. Aa microbrewery operates on site, using barley grown on the farm. Closed Mon-Wed but can be open for a special event or meetings - just ask!

A notice on the pub's website, which we noticed in February 2020, states that the pub has closed. We have also heard that the on-site brewery has ceased production, which seems to confirm this.

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