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.

The pub building dates from the 16th or 17th century. Today it's called called Greyhound Cottage.

Evidently the pub must have closed in or just before 1911, if this press cutting is any indication:
