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 Lord Raglan
Ipswich Lord Raglan
also traded as St Stephen
closed 23rd March 1964
last owner/operator: Tolly Cobbold
208 Woodbridge Rd
grid reference TM 173 448
The former Lord Raglan is now residential. It appears on the 1883 OS map as the St Stephen PH.
In 1891-92 Whites Directory at 208 Woodbridge road a baker is listed under name of John Jennings - in the 1912 and 1922 Kelly's Directories a Mrs Wallace is listed only as a shopkeeper; in 1933 Kelly's Directory Mrs Matilda Wallace is still only listed as a shopkeeper, so the beer house may have been closed during most (all?) of this time?
According to the Ipswich licensing records (1962-1977), the Lord Raglan was by then licensed for off-sales only. Presumably it must have converted from on to off sales some time before?…
To be sold by auction, Lot 7, a beer house and bake office, known as the Lord Raglan, also a house and general shop adjoining, situate in the Woodbridge Road, Ipswich, in the occupations of Oxborrow and another, at rents amounting to £35 per annum.Ipswich Journal, November 1870**
