In the light of the latest government instructions, all pubs are now closed until at least December 2nd.

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

After the end of Lockdown, Suffolk will remain in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with 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.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

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

Ipswich George

Ipswich George

also traded as Royal George

Closed 1840-1920

1 Woodhouse St

grid reference TM 167 443

Woodhouse Street was a street off Waterworks Street, which no longer exists, and was called Victoria Street until sometime between 1874-81.

The pub has been replaced by modern housing.

The closure date was recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923. The 1909 Rates book records it as "George Inn (late)".

Not to be confused with a George/Royal George that is listed at Tower Ramparts/High Street (St Matthew's parish).

Whilst my Great Grandmother Matilda Martin was at the Bull and Dog (1891) it seems her father Thomas Mannall was running the George Inn in Woodhouse Street?from John Martin

All census entries referring to Victoria Street are in St Clement's parish, the other Victoria Street is in St Matthew's parish.

The George can be seen here on an 1881 map of Ipswich.
