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.

Elements of the building may originally have been parts of the Holy Trinity Guild Hall (and associated with the local woollen trade). Nearby Fair Gap was a large area that held a sheep fair on the feast of St John (23rd to 26th June). Since 1689 the building has been used as almshouses.
