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.

The Ship Launch has also been listed historically as being in Cliff Road.

For many years it was the closest pub to the Cobbold brewery. It finally closed for good late in 2010 after a long period of sporadic opening and closure.

For several years afterwards it was a Chinese restaurant, called the Golden Ship, which for a short while had a couple of keg pumps and supposedly had plans (which never came to pass) for Real Ale.

The pub is shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
