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 Victoria Gardens

Beccles Victoria Gardens

Closed between 1840 and 1920

London Rd

grid reference TM 422 900 (approximate location)

There are two pubs named as the Victoria Gardens Beer House, London Road, in the 1861 census, with 3 properties between them. (The enumerator has appended (2) to the second one). Both have been included here because only one is listed in 1851 and the correct pub cannot be determined.

A Smith's paper "Inns of Beccles in 1929" (kindly supplied by Daryl Ling) tells us that "what is now Beaumont House was the Victoria Gardens, this has been closed within living memory". It appears this building may now be known as "Bethesda", though we need to visit to check the details.
