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.

Woodbridge New house

Woodbridge New house

Closed before 1840

Cumberland St

grid reference TM 272 489 (approximate location)

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.
