In the light of the latest government instructions, all pubs are now closed until at least December 2nd.

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.

After the end of Lockdown, Suffolk will remain in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

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.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Ipswich Little Crown and Anchor

Ipswich Little Crown and Anchor

closed 10th January 1920

last owner/operator: cobbold

11 Curve St

grid reference TM 171 444

The Little Crown & Anchor is also listed at 1-3 Gibson Street, but the Curve Street address is what's shown in the 1909 Ipswich Rates book, so seems definitive.

Curve Street is the old name for the part of Rope Walk that runs east from what remains of Regent Street and curves round onto St Helen's St. Gibson Streeet ran south from Curve Street to the footpath which runs from the old Suffolk College site through to Back Hamlet.

The pub's closure date is recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923.

On the 1871 census Samuel Gladwell (born 1837) was running the Little Crown & Anchor at 1/3 Lower Gibson Street, unfortunately he died the next year. (info from Mandy MacDonald)
