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.

Bury St Edmunds Anchor

Bury St Edmunds Anchor

closed 1915.

opened 1860

123 Northgate St

grid reference TL 855 643

The Anchor was demolished after being bombed in 1915. It stood in Northgate Street, opposite Looms Lane.

The 1911 census lists The Anchor at 123 Northgate Street. Earlier listings show it at 119 & 117.

The 1916 Kelly's Directory containing an entry for the pub had probably gone to press before the 1915 bombing.
