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 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.
