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.

Lowestoft Grand Hotel

Lowestoft Grand Hotel

Closed between 1957 and 1992.

South Cliff

grid reference TM 542 911

The old Grand Hotel is now incorporated into (mainly modern and very ugly) government 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. larger map
