Bar return of vessels (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

stop

Here is my best explanation:

'bar' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'return of vessels' is the subsidiary indication.

'return of' shows that the letters should be reversed in order.

'vessels' becomes 'pots' (pot is a kind of vessel).

'pots' in reverse letter order is 'stop'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for stop that I've seen before include "colon, say", "Cease; organ voice", "Post (anag.)", "Check", "Prevent - desist", "Refrain from", "Come to an end", "Pack it in - bar", "Don't allow" and "Finish".)
