In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

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.

Beccles Burton's Stores

Beccles Burton's Stores

also traded as Blue Bell?

Closed unknown.

10 Hungate

grid reference TM 422 902

This was listed in the 1909 rating records as a pub owned by Ind Coope. Unfortunately the name is illegible due to poor handwriting in the rate book, but it's described as "late Hungate Stores", so presumably only converted to a pub shortly before this date. It's listed as the Blue Bell from 1753 to before 1788 ("formerly called the Blue Bell") though it isn't clear if this was a pub.

Our photo and map location show where this pub would have been assuming the numbering scheme is unchanged. It's not clear whether this is a more modern building or the original one re-faced. If you can clear any of this up, please let us know.
