Important Covid information

If all goes according to plan, the first tranche of pubs (those that are able to serve drinkers outdoors) may be able to reopen on April 12th. Though of course, in a situation like this, nothing is guaranteed. The rest of our pubs may be permitted to reopen from May 17th.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those known to be planning to reopen as soon as permitted are listed on this page.

Introduction

Please tell us if you know of any pubs here ready to reopen when outdoors service is permitted.

Now a dry parish. Recorded in Domesday variously as "Watefelda", "Watefella", "Watesfelda" and "Gowatefelda". This village has fine views across the Brett valley and is the site of the moated Barraed's Hall, which was mentioned in the Domesday Book.

1st-3rd century Roman pottery was discovered in Castle Field in 1975, with a glass tessera and Iron Age pottery.

The village hall bar, known as the Five Horseshoes, is open every Friday night as a replacement for the Four Horseshoes.
