In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. 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 terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Botesdale Crown

Botesdale Crown

Closed 1840-1920.

Crown Hill, The St

grid reference TM 048 759

The Crown was a commercial inn and posting house, known to date back at least to 1782 when it was mentioned in an advertisement in the Norfolk Chronicle.

The cottage immediately to the left of this building appears separately in the Listed Buildings Register as "Crown Hill Cottage [...] formerly part of a coaching inn", so was evidently once part of this building.

Having examined the Hartismere licensing records from 1923 to 1962 and found no trace of this pub, we conclude it must have closed before 1923.
