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.

This was originally a thatched pub. Sadly Alice Wesley 68 died in a severe fire at the pub (on Sun 25 Jan 1959). Her two brothers, John & Richard Tolworthy (both over 70) and her son, John Wesley, together with his family escaped the fire. The pub was very badly damaged in the fire. A report of the fire was published in EADT on Mon 26 Jan 1959.

We're not sure when pub was finally closed, but it was still open in the early 1990s. It had been demolished by 2007.

The pub can be seen here on an OS map of the 1890s. (interactive map)
