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.

Benhall Horse & Groom

Benhall Horse & Groom

Closed about 1860

Benhall Green

grid reference TM 381 615

The Horse & Groom was built late in the 17th or early in the 18th century. The pub was closed when the teetotal estate owners returned from abroad and decided they didn't want a pub in their village. The correct building has been confirmed by the Listed Buildings Register.

According to its listing, the building was used as s shop for some years after the pub closed. As it was listed in 1983, we can be fairly sure the shop was still open then.
