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 Earl Grey

Ipswich Earl Grey

closed 1955

1-3 Fore Hamlet

grid reference TM 170 440

The pub Earl Grey stood just in front of where Grimwade Hall (now flats) now stands.

It has been reported as closing in 1949, but the Ipswich licensing records show it closing in April 1955, with the license being transferred to the Flying Horse. (The property was certainly not listed in 1956).

The building was demolished in late 1950s.

Charlie Bishop tells us:

I lived in Ipswich for 18 years but was not born early enough to remember the Earl Grey, although I do remember Tolly ales. My late father's photo collection includes the Earl Grey (see pictures) and was taken in September 1957 - although the pub does not look very active. My father was a meticulous recorder of almost everything so I am convinced that this date is accurate.
