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

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 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.

Ipswich Leopard Inn

Ipswich Leopard Inn

Closed 1920-1970.

opened 1820 circa

104 Crown St

grid reference TM 163 448

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.
