Beccles Horse and Groomhistorical closure era: Victorian / Edwardian
closed September 1880
Horse & Groom Ln or New Market
Closed roughly September 1880, when the license transferred to a new Horse & Groom on Caxton Road.
At present it isn't 100% clear if the pub fronted onto New Market or on Horse and Groom Lane. the photo shows our best guess as to the right building, as the one the other side of Horse & Groom Lane appears too new.
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.
