Dates from 1841 ?
James Bracey is a publican with address as Belton Street in 1841. He is named at the Kings Head in 1844 & 1846.
In 1851 he is an innkeeper, but the address is Lockless Lane.

At the Licensing Sessions held in Lowestoft on Monday 23rd August 1852, Robert Rushmere applied for a new licence. Since this was described as merely a transfer from one house in the village (Railway?)  to another, there was no objection.

Closed after 1974.
Reopening announced in Eastern Daily Press 18.03.1997, `...following completion of extension, interior revamp and remodelling of entrance...'
