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 Ship Launch

Ipswich Ship Launch

Closed between 1920 and 1970

Key St

grid reference TM 167 440 (approximate location)

Evidently a different pub to the Ship Launch in Ship Launch Road. According to the Borough Police licensed premises Register 1903-1923, a bobby on beat number 8 would walk past the Pilot, then the Ship Launch, the Union Jack, the Dolphin, then the Lock Tavern. As we can place the Pilot, the Dolphin and the Lock Tavern, we can work out roughly which area of the quay this pub must have been on.
