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

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. 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 Grasshopper

Ipswich Grasshopper

Closed 1840-1920.

Bramford Rd

grid reference TM 153 450

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.
