Ipswich Lyceum Tavern

Ipswich Lyceum Tavern

also traded as Shamrock, Race Horse

closed 19th June 1909

64 Carr St

grid reference TM 166 445 (approximate location)

This pub was open from at least 1881 as the Race Horse, it was called the Shamrock by 1891, and the Lyceum Tavern by 1901. It was not shown as a pub in earlier censuses.

It evidently stood between the Salutation and Major's Corner; 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.

The closure date is recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923.
