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.

The Prince of Wales was in a large building on the main road junction, which probably dates from the 16th century. The building is positively identified by the Listed Buildings Register.

It has been referred to as the "Old Prince", but was licensed as the Prince of Wales from 1847 (or earlier) until its closure, probably in 1932 or 1933 (the exact date is not known; it's recorded in the licensing records that no application for renewal was received in 1933).

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from 1883 (interactive map).
