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.

Sir Cuthbert Quilter's Melton Brewery Co. was formed in 1902 as the successor to the Coach and Horses Brewery which dated back to 1844.

Being a pioneer in the crusade for "pure beer" Quilter advertised it as the "Pure Ale Brewery" but it closed in 1912 (after his death).

The old brewery building is now a shop and located adjacent to the Coach & Horses pub.
