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.

Clare Castle

Clare Castle

Closed after 1902

opened 1886 or earlier

Stoke Rd

grid reference TL 761 446

The former Castle is now a residential property called Danum House.

Although Clare Book II streets says of Danum House "A conversion from a pub named The Castle built in 1896". It's marked on OS maps at least as early as 1886 but it's only shown up to 1897, not appearing on the 1904 and subsequent sheets. So possibly there's a comma missing from the book and it's actually saying that Danum House was built in 1896 on the site of the pub.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
