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 known to be planning to reopen as soon as permitted are listed on this page.

Ipswich Red Lattice?

Ipswich Red Lattice?

Thought to have been a pub but there is a degree of doubt.

All we know about these premises is a single newspaper report:

Last Tuesday, as a man was filling a Cart at the Crag-Pit at the Upper End of the Wash (in Ipswich) the Side of the Pit fell, and kill'd three Boys, all of them the Sons of Randall Day, at the Red Lattice.Ipswich Journal, July 4th 1741
(This may not be a pub but it is an unusual name & no further explanation was provided)

Footnote

NOTE: Red-lattice at the doors and windows was formerly the sign that an alehouse was duly licensed
