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 popular restaurant pub with a split level bar.

The lion's head figure on the outside wall is said to be the figurehead taken from a Dutch ship captured at the Battle of Sole Bay in 1672, though it has also been suggested it came from a vessel wrecked off Benacre in about 1740.

Parts of the building date from the late 16th century, with an early 19th century wing to the right.

A Victorian brewery was also located here.
