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.
Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.
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.

A spacious Victorian brick building with a pleasant garden and pond.
The large main bar has a spacious seating area and various games available including darts and pool, whilst food is offered in the separate lounge/dining room next door.
We have been informed that the pub closed early in November 2017. At present we have no information as to its future. It was observed in early 2019 to be on the market.
In May 2020, a new license application for the pub was lodged; renovation work has been observed on site.
