Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Beccles Crown & Anchor

Beccles Crown & Anchor

Closed post-1985

7 Ballygate

The Crown & Anchor was built during the 16th century. The pub appears on OS maps at least as late as 1985, so must have closed since then.

It may earlier have been the Black Swan.

It's shown (though not named) on this OS town plan of 1884.
