The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Lowestoft Crown

Lowestoft Crown

also traded as Queens Head Inn

closed 2009
Property to let

151 High St, NR32 1HR

grid reference TM 551 938

Closed for some time. Nicely furnished, large town centre hotel bar. The former Scotts Brewery was once located in some out-buildings to rear of site.

The Crown finally closed in April 2009 after a short period of trading following a six months of closure during the second half of 2008. The building has been on the market for some time, apparently with no interest in it.

It was a nicely furnished, large, town centre hotel bar. The former Scotts Brewery was once located in some out-buildings to the rear of the site (1988-1999).

It was built in the 17th century and substantially altered in the mid 19th.

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