After several years of sporadically closing and reopening, this pub finally shut its doors in July 2010. The building is now used by nearby Coe's as a wedding shop.

It was a popular pre and post-match venue for football fans and was often the location of post-match violence according to reports in the local media.

At one time the final Hare & Hounds was two separate pubs; the Hare & Hounds (fronting Norwich Road, the lower section to the left when looking across Norwich Road) and the Grapes (the taller section on the corner and down Orford Street), listed variously at 1-3 Orford St and Regent St (Norwich Rd)…
