Are pubs open over the Christmas Bank Holiday? | The Sun

CHRISTMAS and New Years is a time when plenty head to the pub, but it's worth checking whether your local will be open.

Opening hours can vary across the festive season, but if your pub is part of a chain, they'll usually have opening hours on their website.

Or worse case scenario, you could always call the pub direct and see if they're taking in customers.

Are pubs open for the Christmas period?

But many pubs close on Christmas Day to give their staff time off to rest.

If your local pub is independently run they'll dictate their opening hours over the Christmas period.
