The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Ipswich George

Ipswich George

also traded as Royal George

Closed between 1840 and 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The pub has been replaced by modern housing.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.
