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

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Ipswich Running Buck

Ipswich Running Buck

also traded as Canes, Buck, Roe-Buck?

closed June 1991

13-15 St Margaret's Plain

grid reference TM 165 448

This was one of Ipswich's most ancient inns; one of only 24 listed in a town assessment of 1689.

There was also a Buck's Head pub nearby in Upper Orwell Street. Some references, especially where they just mention the "Buck" may be confused between the two.

The building is now used as a religious drop-in centre after a period as Canes Nightclub.

The pub is shown (though not named) on this old OS map of 2017. interactive map
