Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Lowestoft Ship & Railway

Lowestoft Ship & Railway

also traded as Dutch Hoy

closed 1861

99 High St

grid reference TM 551 934

From correspondence (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.
