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 old pub is a Grade 2 listed building dating from the early 19th century. In recent years it's been left to decay into a poor state.

It was called the Steam Brewery Tap when it was owned by Victorian brewer Charles Cullingham, who set-up a brewery to the rear of the pub. The archway through the pub building would have been the entrance to the brewery from Brook Street.

It was renamed the Brewery Inn after being acquired by Tollemache (after 1887), and later used as offices.

It's shown on this OS town plan of 1883.
