The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Ipswich St

grid reference TM 050 585

The Prince of Wales was originally called the Falcon and first owned by the Falcon Brewery , of Ipswich [Cuthbert, Bridges & Co]. It was never a very successful beerhouse, with over 25 licensees in just 50 years.

After 1873 it was owned by William Golland Ranson (a Stowmarket brewer). Finally in 1896 it was sold to Tollemache Brewery.

Its close position to the Royal Oak probably helped to guarantee its closure in 1906 in a move to reduce the number of beerhouses at that time.

The building is now a kebab take away.
