Ipswich May Bush Inn

Ipswich May Bush Inn

closed 23rd May 1965

last owner/operator: Tolly Cobbold

43-45 St Helen's St

grid reference TM 169 445

The old May Bush was, for some time, a railwaymen's social club, after a long period as the RAFA club. When seen in May 2019 it was apparently undergoing conversion to something else.

The pub is shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
