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

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. 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.

Bungay Cock

Bungay Cock

Closed pre-1840.

73 Earsham St

grid reference TM 333 897

This building is not shown as a pub on any available OS map (back as far as 1885), so probably closed a long time ago. Even in 1885, the adjacent bridge is called "Cock Bridge", but the building is marked as "Bridge House".

Cock fighting (usually in a pit) was probably a regular feature near here (typically organised on Shrove Tuesday and other holidays), and hence the name was widespread until it was banned in 1795.
