Important Covid information

If all goes according to plan, the first tranche of pubs (those that are able to serve drinkers outdoors) may be able to reopen on April 12th. Though of course, in a situation like this, nothing is guaranteed. The rest of our pubs may be permitted to reopen from May 17th.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those known to be planning to reopen as soon as permitted are listed on this page.

Ipswich Grasshopper

Ipswich Grasshopper

Closed between 1840 and 1920

Bramford Rd

grid reference TM 153 450 (approximate location)

This pub appears in the 1861 census; although no house numbers are given, it is known to have been on the south side of Bramford Road, possibly at about number 49. We would love to identify the precise location; if you know, please let us know.

David H also tells us that there was still a Grasshopper Pub on Bramford Road in 1865, but it was not listed by 1904 or 1937.

There was also a grocer's shop in Prince's Street called the Grasshopper which is sometimes thought to have been a pub, but currently our best guess is that it probably wasn't.
