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.

Barrack Rd (and Ipswich Rd)

grid reference TM 259 482

This ancient pub was demolished a long time ago and up to the end of the 20th century was the site of a garage. In 1999 the garage was itself demolished and the Seal (since renamed the Duke of York) was built on the site.

Footnote

There have been many Dukes of York - the song (Grand Old D of Y) usually refers to Frederick Augustus (1763-1827), second son of George III. He commanded the English army in Flanders in 1794-95. But the song misrepresents the facts as he was only 31, had 30,000 men and had no hills close to where he was fighting. Some claim it could be a reference to Woodbridge Rd hill (close to central Ipswich) when an army barracks was located a little further along the same road?
