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 Red Lion Inn

Ipswich Red Lion Inn

also traded as Little Red Lion

closed 1924

last owner/operator: tollemache

Carr St

grid reference TM 166 445 (approximate location)

The Red Lion is also reported in St Margaret's Street, but was more likely in Carr Street, as the Borough Police licensed premises register shows that a bobby on beat number 2 would walk past the Beehive, the Red Lion, the Lyceum Tavern and the Salutation. (Perhaps it had an entrance either side?)
