Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Kessingland Queen's Head

Kessingland Queen's Head

Closed between 2011 and 2016

26 High St, NR33 7QQ

grid reference TM 522 866

The Queen's Head was a locals' pub on the main road though the village.

We don't have an accurate closure date, but it was between our photographer's two visits in July 2011 and September 2016. In January 2020, an application was lodged to convert the building into holiday lets.

The pub is shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
