Prominent pub that takes its name from a tram terminal that once stood opposite.

Under threat as Tesco have applied for permission to turn it into yet another supermarket: Lowestoft Journal report. A large local campaign, supported by both local MP Peter Aldous and former MP Bob Blizzard, is trying to stop this happening.

Waveney District council has officially designated this as a hotel rather than a pub, meaning Tesco need planning permission for change of use.

Tesco has told the Guardian, "We are taking on derelict or vandalised pubs, not those which are still actively trading, and for all sorts of reasons those pubs were not successful. We go into communities and ask people what they want and how we can deliver that." They have yet to explain how this applies in this case.
