The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Ipswich Old Gaol

Ipswich Old Gaol

closed 20th October 1961

Market Ln?

grid reference TM 163 444 (approximate location)

This pub stood somewhere under the present Buttermarket Centre, probably in Market Lane.

The Borough Police licensed premises register (1903-1923) shows that a beat bobby would have walked past it between the Grand Hotel and the Falcon (now Bowman's). Apparently there was an old gaol located in Market Lane.

Market Lane is shown here on an old OS map:
