Beccles Queen's Head

Beccles Queen's Head

closed 1922

14 Newgate

grid reference TM 422 903 (approximate location)

The Queen's Head evidently closed not long before 1909, as the ratings records of that year list the building as "Queen's Head (late)". In 1915 it's advertised for sale as "recently known as the Queen's Head". However, the 1911 and 1916 listings suggest that the pub reopened.

A Smith, in his paper "Inns of Beccles in 1929" (kindly supplied by Daryl Ling) tells us this pub closed in 1922, which seems to confirm the idea of it having reopened after some period.
