Ipswich Leopard Inn

Ipswich Leopard Inn

Closed between 1920 and 1970

opened about 1820

104 Crown St

grid reference TM 163 448 (approximate location)

The Leopard had a second entrance on Clay Lane and this may also cause some confusion about the pub's location. The 1909 Ipswich Rates book lists it at 104 Tower Ramparts.

It's listed in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923, so evidently closed after 1923.

The pub is also listed at Tower Ditches in 1844, at 95 Tower Terrace from 1855-1874, at 95 Clay Lane in 1879 and at 104 Crown Street by 1888.
