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 Pot of Flowers

Ipswich Pot of Flowers

closed 1939

last owner/operator: cobbold

49-53 Wykes Bishops St

grid reference TM 172 439 (approximate location)

The Pot of Flowers is also listed at 51 Bishop's Hill and strangely at 1 Wykes Bishop Street (in 1865 & 1869).

The 1909 Rates book seems to suggest that the pub was at the end of the street, as it shows 45 - 47 - Pot of Flowers - empty land then nothing. This would be consistent with being close enough to Bishop's Hill to be listed there too.

James Crapnell, a seaman, and his wife Leticia Podd were publicans here sometime between 1871 and 1910; Herbert Skeet and their daughter Elizabeth may have taken over afterwards. Herbert later died aged 48 from cirrhosis at the Nightingale inn.
