Important Covid information

If all goes according to plan, the first tranche of pubs (those that are able to serve drinkers outdoors) may be able to reopen on April 12th. Though of course, in a situation like this, nothing is guaranteed. The rest of our pubs may be permitted to reopen from May 17th.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those planning to reopen when permitted are listed on this page.

Beccles Spread Eagle

Beccles Spread Eagle

Closed between 1840 and 1920

3 Northgate

grid reference TM 421 906

The building was rebuilt about 1867, at which time it became a pub. A Smith's paper "Inns of Beccles in 1929" (kindly supplied by Daryl Ling) tells us that this was the "last house but one in Northgate", which confirms our photo as the correct building.
