Reopened pubs

As pubs across the county are starting to reopen, we're trying to collate a comprehensive list of those that have reopened or are close to it. Our list can be found on this page.


Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Stanton Royal Oak

Stanton Royal Oak

Closed 1840-1920

George Hill

grid reference TL 964 743

The pub is listed in George Hill, the Common, in the 1871, 1891 & 1901 censuses and the Common in 1881. It was probably to the north of the George, which is the next census entry in all cases. This is confirmed by the 1883 OS map (not available to us to reproduce) which shows the pub where we have it marked. It appears to have been demolished.

Thomas Pooley, of Stanton, applied for a full license for a beerhouse kept by him called the Royal Oak. After listening to the pros and cons the Justices refused the license, considering there was no occasion for another house in Stanton.Bury & Norwich Post, August 24th 1869** (when Thomas Pooley was the landlord)
