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 Crown

Ipswich Crown

closed April 1968

last owner/operator: Tolly Cobbold

2 Bridge St

grid reference TM 163 440

The Crown was not listed in 1900 directory, but may have been rebuilt at around this time?

The pub was closed in 1967 or 1968, as part of a scheme to reduce the number of "excess" alcohol licenses.

It's also listed in St Peters Street (in 1839 and earlier).

It's shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
