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.

pub / restaurant

A cosy "L" shaped single bar and dining space. The restaurant specialises in a fusion of English and Spanish food.

It was announced late in November 2019 that this pub will be closed as of xmas eve. There were hopes of a community buy-out, though it has proved impossible to raise enough funds. Early in 2021, a planning application to convert the building to residential use was lodged.

The building dates from the 17th century.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
