Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.
If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.
also traded as sometimes the Three Pigeons
Closed by 1870
opened before 1823
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.
