In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. 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 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.

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

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

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.
