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

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the 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 difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Ipswich Belvedere

Ipswich Belvedere

Closed about 1923 - 1930

last owner/operator: tollemache

26 Cox Ln

grid reference TM 166 444

As far as can be ascertained, the Belvedere backed onto the old Tollemache brewery site. In 2008 the only remaining evidence of the pub was the gatepost on left hand side of the picture, adjacent to Congregational churchyard wall.

Although there have been reports that the pub closed in 1907, it's still recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923. The pub's entry in the 1910 Ipswich Rates book is annotated "Late Belvedere - new site General Gordon", so taking the police book into account it seems it must have closed between 1923 and roughly 1930 (the exact length of time the Rates book was used isn't known, but it seems to be until about then).
