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.

Grade II* listed, former Malting buildings including a splendid historical kiln. The two bars are on separate levels (one above other) with a large enclosed courtyard to the side. Increasingly popular as the dock area is being rejuvenated with new housing and university.

Most of the building dates from the late 18th/early 19th century, though some parts are older. The pub was greatly extended in early 2009. The company also owns Briarbank Brewery in the old bank building on Fore Street.

Footnote

Isaac Lord was a local businessman who bought this Ipswich waterfront site from the Cobbold brewing family in 1900. Some buildings date from the early 15C to late 18C, reflecting the site's commercial and industrial use over four centuries.

During the period of Cobbolds ownership, some buildings were used as a Maltings, and a pub called the Wherry Inn was also located on the site. In 1930, Reginald Cooper joined Isaac Lord's business, helping to grow the firm's corn and coal interests, and eventually becoming the owner of the property.
