As pubs across the county are starting to reopen, we're trying to collate a comprehensive list of those that have reopened or are close to it. Our list can be found on this page.
Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.
If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

In mid-November 2015 the EADT reported that a planning application to convert the Poacher to residential use had been lodged. This has since been granted and the pub closed at the beginning of 2017.
The Poacher was an absolute gem! It had only been a pub since 1979, having been a shop previously. The internal timbering created a timeless atmosphere.
There was occasional live music.
