In the light of the latest government instructions, all pubs are now closed until at least December 2nd.

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

After the end of Lockdown, Suffolk will remain in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Ipswich Bath Tavern

Ipswich Bath Tavern

Closed 1920-1970

Greyfriars Rd

grid reference TM 161 441 (approximate location)

This is only known because it's listed on the 1903 Borough Police beat book. Apparently the bobby on beat number 11 would have walked past it between the Cardinal's Hat and the Lord Chancellor.

It must have closed after 1923, as no closure date is mentioned in the beat book, which was in use at least until that year.

A pub is shown on the 1892-1905 OS map in roughly the right place, though it isn't clear if this is the Bath Tavern or the Lord Chancellor:
