Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

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.
