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.

A narrow fronted 16th century town pub that has a lot of space in a long, narrow, wood panelled, single bar and provides an oasis of calm in the town centre, especially on Friday and Saturday nights. Outdoor tables and chairs in the summer provide the ideal place to watch the world go by. It's popular on Friday & Saturday evenings and extremely handy for the Town Hall, Corn Exchange or theatre visits. Food (12-6). Children are welcome until 7.30pm.

Take a moment to admire the unusual and attractive pub sign.

Footnote

In the time of Queen Mary the Ipswich Martyrs were burnt at the stake on the Cornhill (in 1855) for their Protestant beliefs. A monument commemorating this event now stands in Christchurch Park.
