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.

Esplanade

grid reference TM 547 925

The Royal Hotel was demolished 1973; the site is now occupied by the East Point Pavilion.

In 1865 it's listed as the Royal Hotel & Harbour inn, although this could mean the same proprietor was also running the Harbour Inn.

In 1912 it's listed at Royal plain (facing Esplanade) and described as a family hotel.

In 1916 this hotel was the home of the Royal Arch Chapter of Freemasons and the Unity Lodge of Freemasons.

It can be seen here on the 1890 OS map.
