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.

Ivan Bunn tells us:

The "Hole in the Wall" was located at No. 156 High Street before its demolition in 1897 prior to the street being widened. 156 High Street is noted in a conveyance dated February 1863 as being "...lately used as a beer house formerly known by the name or the sign of the 'Hole in the Wall' afterwards 'The Pilot Boat'..." At that time the landlord was William Porter. It had closed by 1871 and stood empty for a few years.

The Hole in the Wall was demolished and replaced by the Three Herrings.
