Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those known to be planning to reopen as soon as permitted are listed on this page.

Ipswich Dogs Head in the Pot

Ipswich Dogs Head in the Pot

Closed before 1840

Dog's Head St

grid reference TM 164 444

The pub's name apparently alludes to a "dirty slovenly housewife".

An ancient town map (1674) has Dogs Head in the Pot Lane marked. The pub is described as "its appearance was as uncouth as its name with a curiously shaped turret at the corner and an outsize in lantern windows". Later the site was used by offices of the Ipswich Freehold Land Society, latterly the Ipswich Building Society.
