Stowmarket Unicorn

Stowmarket Unicorn

Closed October 2010

opened 1861

last owner/operator: Admiral Taverns

24 Lime Tree Place, IP14 1BT

grid reference TM 052 581

The Unicorn was a friendly local Victorian back street pub that was a popular games venue.

It closed in October 2010. Despite a new tenant earlier that year turning the pub round, the PubCo's greed saw more quick profit in selling the site for housing.

Originally only licensed as a beerhouse. The Stow licensing records show that the Unicorn only got a full license on May 2nd 1962.

In January 1897 Greene King paid £3500 for the Unicorn, "an unheard of price" due to increased competition among breweries [taken from "Greene King" by Richard G. Wilson]
