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 Oak

Clare Oak

also traded as Royal Oak

Closed approx 1958?

Chilton Rd

grid reference TL 769 463

This is shown as a pub (the Oak) on OS maps at least as late as 1958, but not on the 1959 or subsequent sheets, so must have closed about this time.

Beerhouse The Oak is listed in the 1881 census at 11 Chapel Road.

The Royal Oak is listed in Chapel Street in 1891 and Snow Hill in 1901.

It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
