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.

grid reference TM 383 655

Originally only licensed as a beerhouse, the Rising Sun got a full license in 1962 (February 5th).

It's reported as having closed on December 20th 1965, when the license was transferred to Tudor House (which was a licensed restaurant rather than a pub).

The pub is shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
