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 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.
