Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Ipswich Duke (Duke of York)

Ipswich Duke (Duke of York)

formerly Grand Old Duke of York

Due to the government announcement of January 4th, pubs are currently not permitted to sell alcohol to take away, though they are permitted to deliver it. We hope this will change before too long, so still list Suffolk pubs intending to sell takeaway drinks. Food continues to be available for takeaway as before.

Well, here we are again… Lockdown v2.0 2020!

The Government are insisting that all booze ‘takeaway’ from pubs is pre-ordered so ‘click & collect style.

We are trying to make it as simple as possible, so all you have to do is text / WhatsApp your order on 07708 046010.

Our beer list is accurate on Untappd, also on the ‘our beers’ page here, or on our Facebook page (The Duke Ipswich)

Order by 5.45pm for socially distanced collections & payment from the back door of The Duke between 6.00pm & 7.30pm

Real Ale is sold here.

Footnote

There have been many Dukes of York - the song (Grand Old D of Y) usually refers to Frederick Augustus (1763-1827), second son of George III. He commanded the English army in Flanders in 1794-95. But the song misrepresents the facts as he was only 31, had 30,000 men and had no hills close to where he was fighting. Some claim it could be a reference to Woodbridge Rd in Ipswich, though there are undoubtedly many other places where the same claim is made.
