In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. 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 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 Rose & Crown

Beccles Rose & Crown

Closed before 1908.

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.]

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.
