Ipswich Ivy Leaf

Ipswich Ivy Leaf

also traded as Bantam Cock Inn

closed 1933

54 Westgate St

grid reference TM 160 447 (approximate location)

Between 1881-85 it was called the Bantam Cock.

There is some confusion about the location of this pub, as we have two conflicting descriptions.

According to the Borough Police licensed premises register, a bobby on beat number one would have walked past the Crown & Anchor, then the Gladstone, the Ivy Leaf, the Victoria (now Manning's) and finally the Golden Lion.

However, the 1909 Ipswich Rates book shows it about four doors west of the Feathers, which stood on the corner with Lady Lane, which doesn't seem to fit with the beat book. The reported number (54 Westgate Street) seems to fit better with the Rates book. Perhaps the license moved between two buildings in between?
