Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Ipswich Fox & Hounds

closed 13th June 1919

opened mid-1840s

10 Tanners St

grid reference TM 159 444 (approximate location)

This was probably a later name for the Boot, in Austin Street, St Mary at the Elm civil parish. Austin Street probably became part of Tanner's Street between 1861 and 1874.

The Fox & Hounds has also been variously listed in Austin Street (St Mary at the Elm parish), at 27 Tanner's Lane (in 1865), at 37 Tanner's Lane (in 1888), at 29 Tanner's Lane (1874 & 1891) and also at 118 Tanner's Lane. The 1909 Ipswich Rate book lists it at number ten Tanner's Street.

Tanner's Lane ran roughly where the stretch of Civic Drive between Handford Road and Princes Street now runs, with Tanners Street running east to Curriers Lane.

The pub's closure date was recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923 (the month is uncertain as the handwriting's not very good).…
