Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. 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 difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Ipswich Ship Inn

Ipswich Ship Inn

Closed about 1925

opened 15th century

27-29 Back Hamlet

grid reference TM 170 441

Dating back to early 18th century these premises were listed in the 1844 White's Directory with carriers operating from the inn to Henley.

The original Congregational chapel shown was later to become the Grimwade Hall, now part of a residential development fronting the junction between Fore & Back Hamlets - all other property depicted apart from Steam Packet pub has since been demolished.

The Ship Inn was demolished after closure and the road has since been widened. Part of the site is now under the car park in front of current St Clements congregational chapel (on the opposite side of the road to the original one as shown on map below).

The pub is shown below on an 1881 map.
