In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

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.
