Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" 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.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

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

Ipswich Pilot

Ipswich Pilot

Closed 1920-1970

last owner/operator: tollemache

St Peter's Dock

grid reference TM 169 440

It's thought that the Pilot closed some time between 1880 (when the map below was surveyed) and 1904 (when a subsequent map didn't show it). It is listed in the 1909 Rates book as "Vine Inn (late)" and was eventually sold by Tollemache brewery in 1924.

Demolished in 1930s.

This dockside area is now occupied by the new university central building.

It's also listed at the Quay and at Ridley's Quay (in 1844) and Dock Side (in 1891).

The Pilot can be seen here on an 1881 map
