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.

also traded as Dutch Hoy

closed 1861.

99 High St

grid reference TM 551 934

From correspondance (see historical details) it would appear that the pub was called Dutch Hoy in 1841 and earlier. Also soon after 1861 it was split into two public houses with part becoming the Ship whilst the remainder was then called the Railway.

The 1881 census shows 98 & 99 High Street as a grocer's shop.

Footnote

The Lowestoft central railway station was built in 1855 by the Lucas Brothers. It was considered a fine example of their work which amongst other outstanding Victorian buildings included the Royal Albert Hall.
