Important Covid information

If all goes according to plan, the first tranche of pubs (those that are able to serve drinkers outdoors) may be able to reopen on April 12th. Though of course, in a situation like this, nothing is guaranteed. The rest of our pubs may be permitted to reopen from May 17th.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those known to be planning to reopen as soon as permitted are listed on this page.

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
