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 single bar with seating leads to a restaurant. Outside there is a large garden and patio area. Accommodation is available in rooms on a B&B basis and touring caravans can also be accommodated on-site. At one time, it was said that the bells of five churches could be heard from its location.

The pub is on the parish boundary and is most commonly said to be located in Wrentham, though definitive maps show it's actually in South Cove.

The licensing magistrates were evidently a bit confused about the pub in 1879 - they licensed it as the Eight Bells!
