The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

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.
