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.

Wickham Market George

Wickham Market George

Currently closed - may reopen?

95 High St, IP13 0RA

grid reference TM 301 559

opened pre-1652

A Community Benefit Society was set up in December 2016 to acquire, restore and reopen The George. They have now completed a feasibility study and there has been a go decision. For further details, including more historical background, see www.wmgeorge.co.uk.

In September 2018 it was announced that the group had succeeded in buying the pub. Clearly this is just the beginning of a long journey. It's hoped that the pub will be ready to reopen in 2023.

Sadly, the George was almost completely destroyed by fire in April 2013. (EADT article).

Early indications are that the remains of the pub will have to be demolished; we hope it can be rebuilt to continue providing a vital facility to this village…
