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.

Small rural community located close to one of the sources of the river Blyth. Was formerly the seat of both the Sones and Kemp families. Recorded in Domesday as "Upbestuna" and on John Speed's 1610 map as "Vppeſton".

Little now remains of the large post mill which stood at Ubbeston Green from 1825 until its demolition in 1924.

The village sign was designed by Angus Searling, an artist who used to live in the village. There's a boat on it because the River Blythe used to be navigable here.
