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.

Otley Ginger Beer Shop

Otley Ginger Beer Shop

Closed between 1840 and 1920

Chapel Rd

grid reference TM 206 557

This is now called Kersey Cottage.

Tithe Map 1840: 372 cottage, owned by Mary Ann Goodwin; tenant William Bennett, whose main profession was shoemaker.

Steven Podd reports that in the 1841 census the premises are described as a ‘ginger beer shop’. (but from the transcriptions seen, the word ‘ginger’ must be obscure in the original document, and may have transcribed as ‘Stings’).

Bennett seems to have moved to the White Horse around 1844-6 (hence innkeeper trade in 1851).
