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.

Beamed 15th century pub close to a popular roadside golf course. The pub was renamed Saracens in early 2010. Villagers are entitled to play 8 holes which are on common land.

When visited in May 2019 it was undergoing renovation and appears to be getting the old name back.

Most of the building dates from the 18th century but some parts are earlier.
