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 Rose & Crown

Beccles Rose & Crown

Closed 1906

Blyburgate

grid reference TM 424 900

The 1871 census omits this property, although a schedule number is allocated to it. (Perhaps it was unoccupied on the night of the census?)

The 1881 and 1891 censuses list three adjacent pubs in the order Fleece, Crown, Rose & Crown (1881) and Rose & Crown, Crown, Fleece (1891). [ie, the Crown in the centre. This has been used to locate the pub on the map.]

A Smith's paper "Inns of Beccles in 1929" gives us the closure date of 1906.

Planning permission was granted on March 15th 1908 for "drainage of late Rose & Crown building in Blyburgate", which tells us it was closed before that date.

Our photograph shows what may have been the Rose & Crown, based on the census data.
