In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. 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 terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Ipswich Galliot Hoy

Ipswich Galliot Hoy

closed 1843.

Fore St

grid reference TM 166 442

From Elizabethan times until about 1843 a great fair was held in front of the inn and for which an application for a licence was once refused on the grounds that the applicant had been convicted and imprisoned as a cheat.

The pub has since been demolished.

Footnote

A hoy was a small sailing vessel, usually rigged as a sloop and used to carry passengers and goods short distances close to the coast. A galiott was a larger sized Dutch cargo boat.

After the pub's closure the site was occupied for many years by Mr Sneezum's shop. Today the site is now part of a restaurant & bar.
