The Fat Landlord - Village Pub & Takeaway Meals

The Fat Landlord pub, Bell Close,
Helmdon, NN13 5UH (off Church Street)

The Fat Landlord reopened on 4th July 2020 (after the Covid-19 lockdown)

Although things may be different in quite a few ways, you will still receive the same warm welcome you have come to expect from The Fat Landlord.

In accordance with government guidelines we have put various measures in place. We are trying to keep everyone who visits or works here safe:

  • On arrival we ask that you wait to be seated. You will notice that we have placed our furniture, both inside and out, to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
  • You will be asked for contact details (either a telephone number or an email address) of the lead guest, for track and trace purposes. This information will be kept for 21 days.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the building for your use.

We will be providing table service only (this includes drinks only) therefore booking is advisable.
