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.

A cosy two bar pub which is located near to a large industrial area. Pool, darts, and cards (inclding regular poker nights).

There are three beer festivals each year, including Easter, summer and winter events. The pub has good views across the nearby river Stour, looking across the estuary towards Essex.

The access road & nearby ancient bridge was once part of the main road but has been by-passed for many years.

When the Xylonite factory was active, the Crown had a special license that allowed it to stay open ten minutes longer than normal so workers there could get a drink after leaving work.

Footnote

The crown is a simple sign to show loyalty to the reigning monarch and apart from the commonwealth era (1648-60) has been a pub sign for over 600 years.
