With lockdown 2.0 set to lift in England on Wednesday, readers have been looking forward to going to the shops, the gym and, most of all, the pub.

Most watering holes around High Wycombe will reopen their doors to welcome punters on either Wednesday or Thursday as long as they serve "substantial food" as the county enters Tier 2 coronavirus restrictions – but there are a few that have announced they will not be able to open.

Writing on social media, a pub spokesman said on Friday (November 27): “We are sad to announce that we will not be opening next week.

“We were really looking forward to welcoming you all back but unfortunately it seems we have to wait a little longer.

“Our company will review when the government looks again at the tier system in a couple of weeks.

“Stay safe everyone and we hope to see you very soon.”

Another popular pub that will not be reopening this week is the Rose & Crown, in Desborough Road.

Also announcing its decision on social media, the pub’s landlord wrote: “Unfortunately we won’t be opening this Wednesday (2nd).

“As a non-food pub we don’t feel there is enough information available just yet to find a solution to the Tier 2 rules in time.

“We will be back very soon, once we can be sure we can safely reopen and be compliant.

“Thanks for everyone’s patience and support.”
