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.

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
