Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

Update: pubs which are known to have reopened are now also listed. Please let Tony know if you know of pubs not listed that have reopened.

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 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.
