In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

The Suffolk Hotel closed in 1905 when a license renewal was refused.

At some time around 1888, the Bear & Crown, located adjacent to this building, was incorporated into the Suffolk Hotel. The 1884 OS map below shows two distinct pubs where the Suffolk now stands, perhaps confirming this?

The building was later used as a restaurant before being converted into a retail outlet. The lower frontage has changed significantly in modern times.
