Ipswich Maltsters Beerhouse
also traded as as: Maltster's Armshistorical era: Victorian / Edwardian
closed January 31st, 1912
The Maltsters must have stood in Bell Lane, as the Borough Police licensed premises register shows that beat bobby number 9 would walk past the Old Bell, then the Maltsters, Little Wonder, New Anchor and on to the Boar's Head. This is confirmed by an article in the East Anglian Daily Times (March 2012) which mentions it standing on the corner opposite the Old Bell (though confusing the beerhouse with the Maltsters' Arms which was actually in Quay Street).
Also listed as Maltster's Arms in Stoke Street (see historical section).
The closure date is recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923.
