Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. 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 Borough Tavern

Ipswich Borough Tavern

also traded as Old Borough Tavern, Borough Arms

closed 1924

last owner/operator: cobbold

48 Borough Rd

grid reference TM 169 442

The 1909 Rates book has an entry added (date unknown, but presumably after the pub closed in 1924), "Now forms part of Transport House". This suggests it stood on the north-west corner of the junction, where the trades union building now stands. Old maps show a substantial building running round from Waterworks Street into Borough Road - this may have been the pub. (The present building is too new).

Borough Road was the part of what's now Grimwade Street that ran from Rope Walk to Waterworks Street (now Star Lane.)

Before 1850 the pub may be listed at 50 Borough Road. It's also been seen listed in Waterworks Street.
