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 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
