The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Old Chimneys

Hopton End Farm, Market Weston IP22 2NX

A craft brewery opened in 1995 by former Vaux / Greene King / Broughton brewer Alan Thomson. In 2001 the brewery moved to larger premises in a converted farm building in the same village. The beers produced were mostly named after endangered local species.

All bottled beers were suitable for vegetarians and all except Black Rat and Hairy Canary were suitable for vegans.

Sadly, Alan ceased brewing here in April 2019 to concentrate on collaborative brewing with "top quality brewers in the UK and abroad". Good King Henry continues to be brewed by Alan at Grain Brewery.
