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.
Stanton Rose & Crown
Stanton Rose & Crown
Bury Rd (A143), IP31 2BZ
grid reference TL 959 732
The Rose & Crown has been opened and closed several times in recent years. It was found closed again with the freehold for sale when visited in June 2013. It was still closed and in a state of obvious neglect in September 2014; we fear it may never reopen.
The building dates from the early 19th century.
A large (100+ cover) function room named the Crown Suite could be used for any occasion, coach parties were welcome. There was good access for disabled customers, as well as baby changing facilities. The pub had a large beer garden with a bouncy castle at the weekends. Dogs were welcome in the bar and the garden.
The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
