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.

This is a friendly split level bar with a fish & chip shop/restaurant (eat in or take away) attached. The pub is named after a chalk pit (opposite) which used to contain lime kilns (some photos are on display in pub). There's a large garden and car-park. Buskers play every Sunday night. A quiz is held on the first Thursday of every month. Guest ales change regularly. There's no food on Sunday evening or Tuesdays but there's a Sunday Roast on Sundays

There's a toilet for disabled customers.

The pub is actually located in Willisham parish, though it's geographically nearer to Offton. The convoluted boundary between the two parishes here (see the map) adds to the confusion.
