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 General Gordon

Ipswich General Gordon

also traded as Printers 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.
