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 Temperance Hotel

Beccles Temperance Hotel

Closed between 1920 and 1970

6 Station Rd

grid reference TM 422 904 (approximate location)

This seems to have stood adjacent to the baptist church - possibly connected?

My memory tells me that the hanging sign seen here [in postcard dated 12.30pm, July 22, 1911], lingered on the building all the way throughout the era when Gale's Garage had a car showroom adjacent [to the site]. I think they used the old hotel as the office to the garage. I am not at all sure when Gales finally sold out their business, but would guess in the late 1980s. The railings we see here, were [probably] removed for war weapons manufacturing purposes in the first world war.from David Wallace
