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.

Beccles Crown & Anchor

Beccles Crown & Anchor

Closed post-1985.

7 Ballygate

grid reference TM 420 903

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.
