1 Woodhouse St
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The pub has been replaced by modern housing.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)".
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.
