Reopened pubs

As pubs across the county are starting to reopen, we're trying to collate a comprehensive list of those that have reopened or are close to it. Our list can be found on this page.


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 Hop House

Lowestoft Hop House

also traded as O'Reilly's, Greenfields, Grizzly's, Prospect

Closed about 2013

95-98 High St

grid reference TM 551 934

This was a large, short-lived pub which managed to go through a surprising number of guises in the time it was licensed.

It seems first to have operated as O'Reilly's, which was closed and boarded up when we visited it in the summer of 2008.

By 2009 it was trading as Greenfields (presumably related in some way to the other Greenfields in Surrey Street).

In April 2011 we found it had become an American bar & grill and renamed Grizzly's.

When visited in July 2011 it had again been renamed and was called the Prospect.

In 2012 it became the Hop House, which itself was found closed and on the market in July 2013.

When next visited in 2016 it was no longer a bar and had been converted into a café.
