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.

Lowestoft Grand Hotel

Lowestoft Grand Hotel

Closed between 1957 and 1992

South Cliff

grid reference TM 542 911

The old Grand Hotel had been incorporated into (mainly modern and very ugly) government offices. In 2020 it was demolished along with the rest of the offices.

It's shown as a hotel on OS maps at least as late as 1957. By the 1992 sheet it's shown as "Government offices". Available sheets in between are insufficiently detailed to draw any conclusions as to an exact closure date.

It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
