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 General Gordon

also traded as Printers Arms, Painters Arms

Closed about 1937

opened 1860s?

18-20 Upper Barclay St

grid reference TM 166 444 (approximate location)

The General Gordon is listed in the 1910 Ipswich Rate book, but not named.

18 Upper Barclay Street is not shown as a pub in the 1861 census and Upper Barclay Street is not listed in the 1939 Kelly's Directory.

The last landlord listed here (E R Webb) appears to have moved to the Earl Roberts, which was previously called the General Gordon.
