In the light of the latest government instructions, all pubs are now closed until at least December 2nd.

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

After the end of Lockdown, Suffolk will remain in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

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.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Beccles Horse & Groom

Beccles Horse & Groom

closed September 1880

Horse & Groom Ln or New Market

grid reference TM 421 903 (approximate location)

Closed roughly September 1880, when the license transferred to a new Horse & Groom on Caxton Road.

A Smith's paper "Inns of Beccles in 1929" (kindly supplied by Daryl Ling) tells us that this inn was "at the back of Mr Took's confectioners shop". It isn't clear which side of Horse & Groom Lane the inn was, since no maps showing it have been found.

A report in the Ipswich Journal** in Sep 1880 states that :

The license for this house was not renewed at the last licensing day as it was being used as a private house. The magistrate's certificate had been issued in the past to Messrs. Morse and Woods but in the future certificates would only be granted to occupiers of the house.
