Reopened pubs

As pubs across the county are starting to reopen, we're trying to collate a comprehensive list of those that have reopened or are close to it. Our list can be found on this page.

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.


Please tell us if you know of any pubs here which have reopened after lockdown.

Believed to have been a substantial cloth centre in the 16th century and recorded in Domesday (along with Great Waldingfield) as "Walingafella" or "Waldingefelda". It appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Waldingfeilde pua".

The priory was probably owned by the de Vere Priory located at Earls Colne in Essex.
