Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Beccles Pigeons

Beccles Pigeons

also traded as sometimes the Three Pigeons

Closed by 1870

opened before 1823

33-45 Puddingmoor

grid reference TM 418 901

The pub was recorded as the Pigeons in 1823, the Three Pigeons in 1840 & 1844, and the Pigeons in 1855.

By 1870 it had closed; it was demolished in 1963 and was replaced by the building now on this site.

The precise location is unknown, though A Smith, in his paper "Inns of Beccles in 1929" (kindly supplied by Daryl Ling) tells us that it was "almost at the Bungay Road end of Puddingmoor". He also tells us that regattas used to be held on the river nearby and this inn was used to supply refreshments for the officials.
