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 Race Horse

Beccles Race Horse

Closed 1850s/1860s?

Ingate

grid reference TM 427 898 (approximate location)

The Race Horse was located on south side of Ingate.

A Smith's paper "Inns of Beccles in 1929" tells us that "this would no doubt get its name by being near the common where Beccles races used to be held and it must have closed soon after the races were discontinued about 60 or 70 years ago.

Census locations suggest that the Race Horse (1861), Blacksmith's Arms (by 1881) and Victoria Arms (by 1891) may all be the same pub. If you can confirm or refute this, please let us know.
