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 Welcome Stranger

Ipswich Welcome Stranger

also traded as Soldiers Friend

Closed 1840-1920.

Anglesea Rd

grid reference TM 160 451

In the 1861 census this beer house was listed as the Soldiers Friend and located two houses after Grimwade's Cottages in Anglesea Road, between 3 & 5 (at 4?). The location suggests the this is the Suffolk Artillery Arms, listed at 13 Anglesea Rd. by 1871. (Probable street renumbering)

At that time the cavalry barracks were still located nearby (now redeveloped as housing in the Cecil Road & Geneva Road area).
