In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. 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 terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

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

grid reference TM 167 442

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.
