Important Covid information

If all goes according to plan, the first tranche of pubs (those that are able to serve drinkers outdoors) may be able to reopen on April 12th. Though of course, in a situation like this, nothing is guaranteed. The rest of our pubs may be permitted to reopen from May 17th.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those known to be planning to reopen as soon as permitted are listed on this page.

Rattlesden Half Moon

Rattlesden Half Moon

Closed between 1958 and 1974?

Half Moon St

grid reference TL 978 588

We know the Half Moon was burned down, though not exactly when. The pub appears on OS maps at least as late as 1958, but seems to be gone by the 1974 sheet, so presumably closed between those dates.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
