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.

This traditional village pub is in a lovely setting opposite St. Andrews Church, on the hill above Wingfield College and Wingfield Barns (note ... follow the brown tourist signs to Wingfield Barns!)

It was extensively restored in the 1990s and has recently reopened (March 2017) incorporating traditional bar with open fire, a deli/cafe area (serving mainly local products), and further on a large restaurant room with vaulted ceiling. The building is full of character with exposed oak beams.

Footnote

William de la Pole, 1st Duke of Suffolk was an important medieval English soldier and commander in the Hundred Years' War and later Lord Chamberlain of England. He was created Earl of Pembroke in 1447 and Duke of Suffolk in 1448. He became the principal power behind the throne of the weak and compliant Henry VI and Admiral of England plus several other offices. The following three years saw the near-complete loss of all English possessions in northern France, and Suffolk could not avoid taking the blame for the failures. Arrested and imprisoned in the Tower of London, he was banished for five years, but on his journey to France his ship was intercepted, and he was executed.
