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.

Footnote

The Bennet family lived at Rougham Hall during the 19th cent. Philip Bennet was reputedly the last family member to own the house which was of Gothic and Elizabeathan styles. Capt Geoffrey Bennet (winning jockey of the 1923 Grand National riding on Sgt Murphy) was born at Rougham Hall. Sadly the house was the victim of a stray German bomb in WW2 that was probably intended for the nearby airfield. The 2000lb bomb exploded in the courtyard, destroying the foundations of the property. Chimneys fell through the roof, walls fell down and the place has since been left in ruins.
