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.

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 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.
