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.

Combs Ford Volunteers

Combs Ford Volunteers

closed 1913

opened about 1861

Poplar Hill

grid reference TM 050 577 (approximate location)

The pub was owned by Catchpole & Son from 1866 until its closure in 1913.

The former Volunteers was demolished to allow an extension to the adjacent Hubbard's butchers' shop in 1980. That was itself demolished in the 1990s and has been replaced by modern housing.
