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 White Lion

Beccles White Lion

also traded as Angel

Closed pre-1840

3 The Walk

grid reference TM 421 904

One of three pubs through the centuries to have the White Lion name, this was recorded at least as far back as 1681 as the Angel. About 1774 it was renamed the White Lion, with the name transferring from another nearby pub. It isn't clear when it closed, but records show it still open at least as late as 1792.

Our photo and map location assume the numbering scheme is unchanged, though next door at number four is a building which looks very pub-like, so perhaps that was the White Lion?
