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 Criterion Inn

Ipswich Criterion Inn

closed 4th February 1911

21 Museum St

grid reference TM 161 445

My great grandmother's brother was once 'publican's assistant' to his cousin Edward Flowers who ran the Criterion. They lived at 13, Museum Street, which presumably was the address also of the pub? Edward died in 1908 and I believe the pub closed not long after.From Rod Cross

The building dates from the 17th century.

Te closure date was recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923.

The pub was also listed in Elm Street.

In the 1871 census four lodgers were also listed.
