Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

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
