Important Covid information

The first tranche of pubs (those able to serve outdoors) have now been allowed to reopen. The rest of our pubs may be permitted to reopen from May 17th.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those known to have reopened or to be planning to reopen as soon as permitted are listed on this page.

Beccles Prince of Wales

Beccles Prince of Wales

Closed 1919

opened about 1861

5 Smallgate

grid reference TM 421 905

The map location and photo assume that the street numbering scheme is unchanged.

A Smith, in his paper "Inns of Beccles in 1929" (kindly supplied by Daryl Ling) tells us the closure date and that the pub was "in Smallgate where the post office now stands". Unfortunately, no maps showing either have been found so far.

An earlier Prince of Wales used to stand in Saltgate, on the site of the cinema.
