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 Grasshopper

Ipswich Grasshopper

Closed 1840-1920

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.
