The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

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.
