5th Jan 2022 | Local News


Although January is a notoriously difficult trading period for pubs at the best of times, many on the Shotley peninsula are fighting on, while others are taking breaks for a variety of reasons.

Shotley peninsula Nub News has provided the definitive list of who is doing what and when, so you know where to go for a meal or drinks.

The Bristol Arms, Shotley Rose, Butt & Oyster, Kings Arms, and Wheatsheaf have confirmed they are open pretty much as usual and a list of their opening times is below.

Anna Durance at the Wheatsheaf added: "Please don't stay away because you think we'll be busy; our number is 01473 805470 should you wish a report on numbers.

"We have plenty of sanitiser dotted about. Masks to be worn when moving from a to b. No loitering at the bar.

"We reserve the (not yet finished) Garden Room for those needing to be extra cautious."

Dale Russell, general manager of the Butt and Oyster in Pin Mill confirmed they will be operating as normal and added: "As of next week we will also be offering £10 off a meal for two after 6pm Monday to Thursday when you download the Deben Inns app.

"I would like to thank all my team and my customers for their continued support and hard work during another strange year."

Meanwhile, the Shipwreck, Holbrook Swan and Freston Boot are taking time out this month.

The Shipwreck is having its annual shut down, which includes the lock closure at Shotley marina and the bar and restaurant will open on February 12.

The Bakers Arms in Harkstead was among those that did not open for New Year's Eve due to Covid and cancellations, and their opening times are still to be confirmed.
