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.

Metfield Red House

Metfield Red House

Closed between 1840 and 1920

The Street

grid reference TM 294 804

A beerhouse is shown at this location on the 1884 OS map. It doesn't appear on the 1905 or 1928 maps so presumably closed between 1901 (the date of the last landlord entry found) and that date. It was certainly closed by 1909, as the Rate book of that year lists it as "Late PH".

The building at this location has a sign, "The Red House". The beerhouse probably only took up a small part of the building, but it isn't clear which, though the map seems to imply it was somewhere in the middle.

The Red House can be seen here on an old OS map.
