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.

Introduction

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

A winner of the Best Kept Village competition. The name suggests that it was originally an off-shoot from an older settlement at Dagworth, which is now a tiny hamlet.

Old Newton was recorded in Domesday variously as "Newetona", "Neutuna" and "Nieutuna".

The 870 Battle of Stonebridge was fought between Danes and Saxons in the area of Stonebridge Lane.

According to local records, commercial hop growing started in England in Dagworth. Hop fields were recorded (and taxed) in the 17th century but by the early 19th century the industry had generally moved elsewhere - principally to Kent and Herefordshire. Wild hops can still be found in several local hedgerows.

Dagworth was the site of a Domesday church half owned by Breme, who was killed at the Battle of Hastings.
