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

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the 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 Black Bull

Beccles Black Bull

Closed pre-1840.

We know very little about this pub except a reference in a 1779 edition of the Ipswich Journal as follows:

To be sold, the Black Bull in Beccles, together with a compleat set of brewing utensils sufficient to wet 7 comb of malt....Enquire of James Cockrill, the present tenant.Ipswich Journal, 13 Nov 1779***

This may possibly be an alternative name for the Bull, later known as the Angel.
