The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Ipswich Admirals Head

also traded as Admiral Vernon's Head

closed 1898

opened roughly 1740s

2 & 4 St Margaret's St

The pub's name probably refers to Admiral Vernon; resident of Nacton and victor in the 1739 Battle of Portobello.

These premises were listed in the 1844 White's Directory with carriers then operating from the inn to Woodbridge.

After closure it was used as an antique shop for several years.

Long-demolished.

It can be seen on this OS town plan of 1883.
