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.

It has been confirmed that the present Windsor House is indeed the site of The King William pub, or 'the William' as some locals knew it. Some old photos of the pub from the local archive are now published thanks to Elizabeth Clarke - also see their archive group website for more details.

We've found records suggesting the pub was open at least until the Second World War.

The beerhouse can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
