Important Covid information

If all goes according to plan, the first tranche of pubs (those that are able to serve drinkers outdoors) may be able to reopen on April 12th. Though of course, in a situation like this, nothing is guaranteed. The rest of our pubs may be permitted to reopen from May 17th.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those planning to reopen when permitted are listed on this page.

Ipswich Bath Tavern

Ipswich Bath Tavern

Closed between 1920 and 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:
