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.

Southwold Marlborough Hotel

Southwold Marlborough Hotel

closed 1943

North Cliff

grid reference TM 510 763

In 1900 this 50 bed & sitting roomed hotel was described as "occupying the finest position on the sea front - commanding a magnificent & uninterrupted view of the German Ocean". It also offered a spacious Hall, Lounge, Drawing, Coffee, Smoking and Billiard rooms with Bath rooms on each floor.

It was destroyed by a bomb in 1943.

A hotel is shown on the 1904 OS map at the location we've marked, but it's an empty space on the 1957 sheet, which fits with it having been destroyed in the war. Buildings still standing in Marlborough Road seem to match those in one of our old photos, so this seems a likely location.

An un-named hotel is shown at this location on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
