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 Rising Sun
Ipswich Rising Sun

63 Princes St
grid reference TM 160 443 (approximate location)
The Rising Sun stood on the junction of Princes Street and James Street (which no longer exists). It was subject to a compulsory purchase order and demolished in 1960 for the Civic Drive development scheme.
The pub is listed in Bird's Garden, St Nicholas' parish in the 1841 census, which may have been an earlier building. It has not been found in censuses from 1851 to 1881.
Another listing shows the pub at Friars Street (maybe an earlier building?)
