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

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 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.

This pub seems once to have been a fair bit bigger, possibly incorporating much of what's now the Nat West bank (or possibly an upstairs part of it). It has been described as having three bars - one reserved for men only - reputedly the last one of that type in Ipswich.

Rebuilt as Kings Arms (circa 1872) but dates back much further and is possibly on the site of an earlier pub called the Three Connies.

It's also listed as 25 or 28 Cornhill - before post office building was erected (circa 1881).
