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 Wherry Inn has gone to make way for Isaac Lord's coal yard.

which would fit with this location.

The St Clement's church rates book for 1811 lists this as "The Old Wherry". Whether this means it had closed by then or was trading under that name to differentiate itself from the other Wherry Inn isn't known.

Some of the early entries for the Wherry Inn (New Wherry Inn) may in fact refer to this pub. An 1884 map shows a public house to the east of the location of the Wherry Inn (New Wherry Inn), which suggests that the pub may have been rebuilt next door. (See above).
