The Beehive

The Beehive in Sprowston may not be anywhere near to being the oldest in Norwich having opened in 1959 but the pub did appear to be popular with The Beehive receiving the Cask Marque `Certificate of Excellence' and eventually becoming well known for its food.
 
The Beehive would close on the 16th January 2014 with the building becoming home to a new branch of CO-OP daily. This at the time left the town of Sprowston with just one pub.

Location: 57 Cannerby Lane, Spowston
Year Closed: 2014 
 
 
The Constitution

The Constitution was a 1930s traditional pub, located on Constitution Hill in Norwich. The pub would close in 2012 with the building itself being converted into housing, sometime after 2012. The current building that stands at 140 Constitution Street is a very unique looking building which some people might find to be a bit ugly. This 1930s building replaced another building which dated back until at least the mid-nineteenth century.

Location: 140 Constitution Hill
Year closed: 2010

       
   
Kings Arms

Kings Arms was originally a pub until 2003 when it closed and became a mix between a pub and a Chinese restaurant. The location appeared to have pretty awful reviews before closing which would go a long way to explaining why that business failed. The location would close in 2016 with the owners being refused planning permission to turn the building into two housing units.

Location: 1 Panxworth Road, South Walsham

Year Closed: 2016
