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 White Lion

Beccles White Lion

also traded as Angel

Closed before 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?
