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 Old Blue Anchor Stores

Lowestoft Old Blue Anchor Stores

formerly Blue Anchor, Old Blue Anchor

Currently closed - may reopen?

133a High St, NR32 1HP

grid reference TM 551 936

opened 1898

Recently redecorated and hoping to open in August 2021 under a new leaseholder in Mark Gee, formerly of Tramways Hotel, who is opening a Seafood Restaurant & Bar. The current building apparently dates from 1888, but is on the site of an older inn.

New management moved on in 2019 and we understand the pub is currently closed again.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about 1904 (interactive map)
