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.

Footnote

Albion is an old name for Britain an may derive from Roman times, as "albus" is a latin word that means white and could be a reference to the famous cliffs at Dover, often the first view that visitors to these islands may see as they cross the Engliah Channel from mainland Europe.
