Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" 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.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

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

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
