In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Woodbridge New house

Woodbridge New house

Closed pre-1840.

Cumberland St

grid reference TM 272 489

All we know about this premises (possibly mainly used a an off licence) is an entry in the Ipswich journal in 1778:

Simon Maw, Grocer and Wine-maker, of Woodbridge, late in partnership with Robert Dudley, informs the public, that he is removed to the New House, opposite the Queen's Head Tavern, where he sells as usual, wholesale and retail, all articles in the Grocery. The very best home-made Wines and Raspberry Brandy, on the most reasonable terms.Ipswich Journal, 21 Mar 1778***

Since the Seckford Street Queen's Head seems never to have had any buildings opposite it, we can be confident that the Queen's Head referred to is the one in Cumberland Street.
