The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Beccles Angel

Beccles Angel

also traded as Bull, Maid's Head

Closed between 1937 and 1969?

5 Ballygate

grid reference TM 420 903

The Angel was an old coaching inn, dating back to the 16th century.

The pub appears on the 1927 OS map but has disappeared by the 1969 sheet, so presumably closed between those dates.

Recorded in 1638 as the Maid's Head and in 1736 as the Bull. By 1818 it had become the Angel. It may also have been the Black Bull

It can be seen (though it's not named) on this OS town plan of 1884.
