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.

A local community owned and run pub.

The single bar serves two drinking areas. There is also plenty of seating in the pretty beer garden.

Various music evenings and themed food nights but no TV. Traditional pub games are available including darts, cards and dominoes. Quiz every month (last Saturday).

Local artists' work is on display. There's a wood-burning stove in the restaurant area. Some of the produce used in the kitchen is now being grown by the local community in their own garden.

Nearby (on some of the pub land) a new build local community shop is being run as a separate entity to provide basic groceries for the village.

The pub holds the Cask Marque Award for serving great quality real ale and has a toilet accessible to disabled customers.…

Footnote

The phrase "Case is Altered" was first used by an Elizabethan lawyer, Edmund Plowden and referred to new evidence in a legal case. Later Ben Johnson - an Elizabethan playright - also used it as a name for a comedy (written before 1599).
