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.

Historic inn with an old carved sign (possibly dating from 1415) which may be the oldest in England. Bar to right with inglenook fireplace is now a restaurant. Bar is to the left with beamed ceiling. Mix of seating: bar stools, wooden tables & chairs, comfy armchairs and a choir pew in the fireplace. Achieved Cask Marque status June 2017.

The carved pub sign is depicted on the town sign. The building itself may date back as far as 1361 when it was known as Quilters.
