Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

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.
