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.

The building probably dates from the 17th century, but has been much altered. It has been converted into several retail units, having stood empty for several years.

Since about the end of 2015, a small bar called the Comfortable Cow has been established in one part of the building.

The pub is shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
