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.

Footnote

Although such signs of a black boy usually today portray a quaint picture of a sweep in Dickensian costume - in the 17th cent. the fashion for negro servants e.g. pageboys was also quite common for the wealthy.
