Ipswich Suffolk Artillery Arms
also traded as as: Artillery Arms, Soldiers Friendhistorical era: Victorian / Edwardian
closed October 7th, 1914
13 Anglesea Rd
The pub's closure date was recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923.
The police beat list shows that a bobby on beat 16 would walk past the Victoria Hotel, then the Artillery Arms and onwards to the Greyhound, suggesting that the pub was probably to the east of Berners Street (or on the corner). One list suggests that the pub was on the High Street, though the beat route seems to refute this (unless it moved?)
