Reopened pubs

As pubs across the county are starting to reopen, we're trying to collate a comprehensive list of those that have reopened or are close to it. Our list can be found on this page.


Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

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.
