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.

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
