The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Ipswich Suffolk Hotel

Ipswich Suffolk Hotel

Closed about 1970

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. interactive map
