Footnote

Tap & Spile was created as a national chain of themed and heavily branded pubs - created from existing selected pubs usually owned by the former Pubmaster pub group. Initially these pubs were very popular and able to offer a very wide range of real ales though in later years the beer range was increasingly restricted. In Suffolk there were just 3 pubs - in Ipswich, Felixstowe (Walton) and Woodbridge.
