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.

Church St, IP21 5HT

traditional bar, opened 16th century
This is a free house in the middle of a thriving village, opposite the church. The building dates from the late 17th or early 18th century, with subsequent alterations leaving it with one large bar area with comfortable seating. There is a large open fire at one end of the room. The bar has a small library behind for those wishing to linger. There is apparently some royal connection in the past with the White Hart being seen as the symbol of Richard II
