grid reference TM 170 442

The Malt House stood roughly where Suffolk College now stands. It closed in 1950, when the license was transferred to the "Maidenhall Inn". This may have been an earlier name for the Smock, though that pub got a license from the Elephant & Castle in 1960, so this is uncertain and there may have been another new pub there.

The pub is also listed at Long Street and at 38 New Street (in 1865). It's listed at http://www.tollycobbold.co.uk/ as having been open in 1924.

I was born in the Malthouse Pub on February 28th 1941, during an Air raid. My Parents, Charles and Hilda Elvin, were eventually bombed out of the Malthouse Pub (in Long Street) having to vacate on the 17th July 1944…
