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.

The Neptune was reportedly in what's now the pier pavilion. It was first licensed on March 14th 1960, when the license from the now-defunct Grand hotel was transferred to it.

"The Neptune Bar was on lower left of the Pier building (now owned by Ipswich Salthouse oeners). It was popular with bikers and hippies and often had discos. Don't know when it closed but I can remember going in it c1972" Martyn Elmy

"In about 1982 it was renamed "Mariners" and traded for a couple more years." Martyn Elmy
