Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Ipswich St Nicholas Tavern

Ipswich St Nicholas Tavern

also traded as St Nicholas Ale Stores

closed 22nd January 1922

49 & 51 Curriers Ln

grid reference TM 160 443 (approximate location)

It was listed as a Colchester Brewing Co Ltd pub.

The map location must be pretty close as beat bobby number 12 would have walked past it between the British Lion and the Curriers Arms.

For many years the pub was run by a family who also ran an adjacent bakery. Exactly when the pub was trading or not trading is not always clear from the records we have seen.

The St Nicholas Tavern was closed down by the Justices in 1911.

The final closure date is recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923.
