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.

Once a coaching inn, the front room was used as a restaurant, with a bar and patio to the rear.

The pub has closed and developers want to demolish it and replace it with homes. There have been local protests against this plan, but permission was granted in November 2016. However, when visited in July 2019, it was observed that the building was still standing and boarded-up.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
