The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Beccles Pigeons

also traded as sometimes the Three Pigeons

Closed by 1870

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.
