Ipswich Church's Bar & Bistro

Ipswich Church's Bar & Bistro

also traded as Church's Café Bar

Closed Late 2016

opened 1996

Hatton Court, IP1 3BW

grid reference TM 164 446

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. In 2021, it was noticed that it was on the market.
