Important Covid information

If all goes according to plan, the first tranche of pubs (those that are able to serve drinkers outdoors) may be able to reopen on April 12th. Though of course, in a situation like this, nothing is guaranteed. The rest of our pubs may be permitted to reopen from May 17th.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those known to be planning to reopen as soon as permitted are listed on this page.

Ipswich Lord Chancellor Inn

Ipswich Lord Chancellor Inn

closed 31st December 1914

10-12 Greyfriars Rd

grid reference TM 162 441 (approximate location)

The closure date is recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923. It seems likely the pub has been demolished, though we have yet to identify its precise location.

The pub has also been listed variously at Crown Lane (1844), at Friar's Street (1855) at Friar's Road (1871) and at Grey Friars Road in 1888.

A pub is shown on the 1892-1905 OS map in roughly the right place, though it isn't clear if this is the Bath Tavern or the Lord Chancellor:

possibly this pub on an old OS map
