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 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.
