Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

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.
