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 Unicorn was formerly owned by the nearby (still standing) Catchpole Brewery. Adjacent to the hotel were houses for both the brewer and brewery employees (now converted into restaurants).
