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.

Bungay Crown

Bungay Crown

Closed between 1925 and the early 1930s..

24 Cross St

grid reference TM 336 897

The 1909 town Rates book (which lists the Crown at 24 Cross St) describes it as "Late Crown Inn". Since this book was in use until the early 1930s and the last directory entry found was from 1925, we can infer that it probably closed between those dates.

The pub is also variously listed at Market Place, Engine House Street (in 1855) an Cross Street (in 1904).

The Crown is shown (though unnamed) on this old OS map from about 1903 (larger map)
