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 George was also reported as being at the Buttermarket. In 1832 it was advertised to let in the Bury & Norwich Post.

The building was demolished in 1909; presumably it closed shortly before that:
