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.

Ipswich Rose & Crown

Ipswich Rose & Crown

closed July 2011

opened 17th century

77 Norwich Rd, IP1 2PR

grid reference TM 155 450

The Rose & Crown finally closed in July 2011. Most signage had already been removed by mid-month. Planning permission for conversion to a Kurdish community centre was applied for; however, "renovation" work by the group was totally bodged, leading to Bramford Road having to be closed for a long period because of the risk the building might collapse.

Since then, the building has been partially demolished, but still stands in a terrible state.

A reference in the Ipswich Journal, July 10th & 17th 1726*** to the Rose and Crown in St Matthew's Parish, Ipswich.

Also listed at Whitten Road (in 1839) and as a 1830s brew pub.…
