Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be 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.
