    The list currently stands at 50, only 7 of these are due to coronavirus so far.

    I've been maintaining this list since 2015.

    Originally when pubs got closed for a refurb, whoever marked them closed often forgets to reopen them or never visits the area again.

    One of the joys of being an admin, you get to do all sorts of crap that no-one else wants to.

    I did hear somewhere, possibly Twitter , a while ago now, that the Pilcrow was due to shut permanently, true or false news?

    Please note.

    I do NOT have a list of pubs closed as permanent using "other" as the reason even if it says temporary in the reason.

    They have to be closed as "Being Refurbished" which gives a status of Temporary.

    I've amended the ones that you did Richard, my fault for not explaining it well enough.

    So to be clear. Choose "Pub is being refurnished" to give a status of Temporary and mention coronavirus in the text.

    That will then get picked up by Dave's SQL

    Fair enough, and I think an early strong contender for 'euphemism of the year'!

    I visited 4 local pubs last night as I think they will close all pubs pretty soon and they were a lot quieter than usual.Spreading my money around locally or spreading a virus around.Depends on your point of view.Two of them were card only and one had reduced the price of cask by 50p.Tough times ahead for the pub trade.

    Suspend Pubs Galore and activate Pubs Minimalist. Just a thought.

    But they don't then show up on the pub map, which makes it difficult to know to revisit when in the area. How easy would it be to give those temporarily closed a different pin colour so they still come up on the map, as closed, for now, but we know to try them out at a later date?

    I had thought that before, it would be very useful.
