Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. 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 Sorrel Horse

Ipswich Sorrel Horse

also traded as Sorrell Horse

Closed about 1977

121 Fore St

grid reference TM 169 441

Old photographs show that the pub had a small single-storey frontage onto Fore Street and a cart entrance, but this has since been rebuilt or remodelled.

The 1963-1977 Ipswich licensing records show that the Sorrel Horse was open at least as late as 1977.

The former Sorrel Horse site is now used for a mixture of residential housing and office units.

The pub can be seen here on an 1881 map:
