The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

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
