Ipswich Church's Bar & Bistro
also traded as as: Church's Café Barhistorical closure era: 21st century
closed Late 2016
Hatton Court, IP1 3BW
A former hairdresser's converted into a cosy café bar and set in a small lane close to the splendid 14th century St Mary le Tower church. It's nicely decorated, with exposed beams.
On the evidence of the ancient-looking and very hefty sign-hanger on the corner, this must have been a pub in the distant past as well, but we have no details.
Church's closed late in 2016, though according to a notice in the window it can still be hired for functions.
