In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. 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 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 Wherry Inn (Old Wherry)

Ipswich Wherry Inn (Old Wherry)

Closed unknown.

Wherry Quay

grid reference TM 168 440

A public house is shown at this location on the 1932 valuation map. According to the book, "A Victorian Vision, the building of Ipswich Wet Dock",

The Wherry Inn has gone to make way for Isaac Lord's coal yard.

which would fit with this location.

The St Clement's church rates book for 1811 lists this as "The Old Wherry". Whether this means it had closed by then or was trading under that name to differentiate itself from the other Wherry Inn isn't known.

Some of the early entries for the Wherry Inn (New Wherry Inn) may in fact refer to this pub. An 1884 map shows a public house to the east of the location of the Wherry Inn (New Wherry Inn), which suggests that the pub may have been rebuilt next door. (See above).
