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 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).
