Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. 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 difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Beccles Waveney Hotel

Beccles Waveney Hotel

also traded as Waveny Wine & Sprits Stores, Buck's Bar

closed 1907

21 Northgate

grid reference TM 421 907

According to information transcribed by the Foxearth & District Local History Society, it had long been known as the Waveney Wine & Spirits Stores in 1890, though it seems to have become the Waveney Hotel by 1896.

A Smith's paper "Pubs of Beccles in 1929" (supplied by Daryl Ling) tells us that "This was only a six days house. It was kept years ago by a man named Buck and known as Buck's Bar, it was closed in 1907".

Aveley House is shown (though not named) as a pub on this OS town plan of 1884.
