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.

Rattlesden Rising Sun

Rattlesden Rising Sun

Closed between 1975 and 1979?

Mitchery Ln

grid reference TL 977 584

The Rising Sun is marked on OS maps at least as late as 1975, but seems to have gone by the 1979 sheets, so presumably closed between those dates. The steep climb up from the village no doubt explains why too few locals used it for it to stay open.

It's listed at Poy Street Green until at least 1901.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from 1884. interactive map
