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.

Footnote

The black lion is a heraldic sign mainly related to either Queen Philippa of Hainault - wife of Edward III and a popular 14th cent. queen who was married for over 40 years. Or it may be a reference to Owain Glyndwr - the celebrated 14th cent. Welsh chieftain.
