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.

Benacre Walnut Tree

Benacre Walnut Tree

Closed 1877 or 78

opened pre-1746

The Street

grid reference TM 504 851

The Walnut Tree disappears from the licensing records in 1878 so seems likely to have closed at about that time. However, it was still known as the Walnut Tree for many years after the pub closed; the 1909 Rates book records a shop and buildings "at the Walnut Tree".

It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century as "Walnut Tree Inn Farm". interactive map
