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.

Beccles Bear & Bells

Beccles Bear & Bells

formerly Bear

Real Ale is sold here.

11 Old Market, NR34 9AP

grid reference TM 421 905

The pub is adjacent to bus station, close to town centre and near to the river Waveney, so it is handy for visitors to the Broads. It was refurbished internally prior to re-opening in October 2020 under new management. There is a central bar area and a side room and a separate dining area, which doubles as a function room. A paved garden is at the rear and tables are set out in front of the pub in summer months.

This 17th century pub stands on a site which has supported licensed premises since 1620.

Footnote

The odd name may indicate that there were originally two pubs on this site, one called the Bear, the other the Bell or Bells.
