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 Bull and Dog

Ipswich Bull and Dog

also traded as Bull Dog Inn, Black Lion?

closed February 1920

last owner/operator: cobbold

55 Fore St

The building dates from the 18th century or earlier.

We've seen one reference to this building as the Black Lion, though whether this is an older name or a mistake isn't currently known.

In 1888 the pub was listed at 53 Fore Street, St Clements.

By 1922 part of the pub had been converted into a Post Office and remains as a Post Office today. The license was surrendered February 1920, according to the Borough Police licensed premises register.

John Martin tells us:

My Great Grandmother Matilda Martin (later Wallace) ran the Bull & Dog in Fore Street in the late 1800s. When she re-married the family moved to the Lord Raglan on Woodbridge Road where she lived until the mid 1930s.
