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

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

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 Suffolk Hotel

Ipswich Suffolk Hotel

Closed 1970 circa.

31 Commercial Rd

grid reference TM 158 440

It stood on the corner of Commercial Road and New Cardinal Street.

At a Petty Sessions hearing on 29 September 1860, the Suffolk Hotel was refused a new spirits licence. Out of the twenty four applications only three establishments were granted licences.

Later it was called the Suffolk Stores off licence.

Building has since been demolished and eventually this site was redeveloped into part of a Royal Mail sorting office. New Cardinal street has been shortened, so no longer exists in this location.

It's shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
