Bentley Tankard map

The Tankard was virtually on the border with Capel St Mary, on the junction of the road to Ipswich with the Bentley Road.

It existed as early as 1838 and closed in 1928, when its license was transferred to the newly-built Rushmere St Andrew Golf.

The pub was demolished soon after closure and was replaced by a garage that was itself subsequently demolished in the 1990s, when the current junction and underpass were built.
