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 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:
