Ipswich Galliot Hoyhistorical era: Victorian / Edwardian
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.

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.
