In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Ipswich Pack Horse Inn

Ipswich Pack Horse Inn

Closed pre-1840.

opened 16th century

St Margaret's Plain

grid reference TM 165 447

This magnificent old inn is now an estate agency.

The building dates from the 16th or 17th century, but suffered major remodelling in the 20th century during road-widening works. It doesn't appear in the borough licensing records for 1903-1923 or on maps as early as 1883, so probably closed before the latter date.

To be lett, the Pack Horse Inn in St Margaret's Parish, a very good accustomed House, late in the occupation of Mr Adam Collings. Inquire of Mr Trotman about the Pack Horse and of Mr Collings, at the Galley Hoy in St Clement's.Ipswich Journal, January 31st 1736***
