Important Covid information

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those planning to reopen when permitted are listed on this page.

Oulton Foundry Mens Arms

Oulton Foundry Mens Arms

Closed before 1840

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

To be sold by auction, Lot 1, A freehold licensed Beer House, situated at Oulton, called, The Foundry Men's Arms, with a stable yard, well, ten pin ground, and other conveniences, in the occupation of Robert Draper, as under tenant to Messrs. G and W Everitt. Annual rent 20s. Also, a building built for and lately used as a converting furnace, and very eligible for a stable. These premises being next the road leading from Oulton Bridge to Great Yarmouth, and distant only one mile from Lowestoft.Ipswich Journal, February 1840**

From the description, this may be an older name for the Blue Boar, the first reference to which found is from 1841 - perhaps whoever bought the pub renamed it?
