Beccles Falcon

Beccles Falcon

Closed between 1920 and 1970

The Falcon was demolished for a retail development in 1963.

A Smith's paper "Inns of Beccles in 1929" (kindly supplied by Daryl Ling) tells us that there was a cockpit in the Falcon. Smith tells us that it was the oldest inn in town.

Historically listed in Ballygate.
