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

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. 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.

Lowestoft Anchor Coffee Tavern

Lowestoft Anchor Coffee Tavern

Closed 1840-1920.

All we know about these premises is a single newspaper report:

The Anchor Coffee Tavern: The capacious bowling green in connection with this tavern was opened on Saturday 2nd May 1885, and the weather being beautifully fine, there was a considerable attendance. The tavern is under the patronage of Mr and Mrs J J Coleman, of Clyffe House, who takes a great interest in its success.Ipswich Journal, May 1885**
