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.

Rushmere St Andrew Falcon

Rushmere St Andrew Falcon

Closed approx. Jan 2011

opened before 1838

165 Playford Rd, IP5 1DD

grid reference TM 206 460

An early 19th century pub located just outside the village, on the outskirts of Ipswich.

It is now closed and has been converted to residential use.

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Falcon's license was issued in 1853, though it's shown on the 1838 OS map, so this was probably just a conversion from a beerhouse license to full one.

One source shows the Falcon at 165 Humber Doucy Lane. This seems to be an error.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
