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 Crown & Sceptre

Ipswich Crown & Sceptre

closed 5th June 1959

last owner/operator: cobbold

20 Crown St

grid reference TM 160 447

The Crown & Sceptre was closed down by the licensing authorities on "grounds of redundancy". Demolished in July 1961.

It's listed at 20 Crown Street in 1932 and 1939, and at 30 Crown Street by 1956, but shown in the same location on corner of High Street. It's also listed at 11 or 15 High Street.

It seems possible that this pub and one with the same name in Key Street may have been confused by some sources. Some landlords listed for one may actually have been at the other.
