Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

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.
