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.

Naughton Wheelhouse

Naughton Wheelhouse

formerly Wheeler's Inn, Wheel inn

Hello everyone, just a quick update. The Wheelhouse will be reopening on Wednesday, 21st July at 5.00pm. Although restrictions are being lifted please be careful as Covid19 has not gone away. Hand sanitiser will be readily available for use and the one outside will be on the side of the garage facing down the garden.

Please make the most of sitting in the garden where there are plenty of tables - it'll probably be warmer out than in seeing these buildings take ages to warm up and we haven't had much of a Summer yet! The weather is looking better for next week so fingers crossed the forecast is right.

Please leave empty glasses on the designated table outside from where I will collect them.

Bar stools and sitting at the bar will not be returning for the foreseeable future as I would not be comfortable with a group that close together no matter how much ventilation and I don't wish to make anyone feel uncomfortable when they come to the bar to order. Distancing is still very important.

Should the weather be unkind and you need to sit indoors please make sure you have appropriate clothing as there will be plenty of through ventilation. Once again please put empty glasses on the trays on the bar as I wish to make sure the bar itself keeps clean.

The Pub opening hours will be 5.00pm until 10.00pm every evening except Tuesday when it will be closed.

If I have missed something that would make you feel more comfortable whilst visiting the pub please let me know.

I am really looking forward to seeing you all again - it has been far too long. In the meantime take care and I hope to see some of you next week.

Regards.......Nancy

Please mind your head upon entering this delightful, friendly but small rural, thatched pub with very low beams in the main bar. In fact the traditionally tiled floor is actually now much lower (by about a foot) than it once was & is now below ground-level. A more spacious public bar can be noisier & also leads to a games room with pool table & darts. There is always an interesting selection of ever changing ales available & a garden to the rear of the pub offers a nice place to relax on sunny days.

The bus stop is on the main road between Offton and Bildeston.

Opening hours: Sun: 12-10.30 (summer, from April 5th)

May close early depending on trade.…
