Closure date recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923.
A report in the Ipswich Journal** on Apr-14 in 1900 when Laura Enemy was the landlady states that : "Laura Westley was under the influence of drink and dancing to a crowd at Hyde Park Corner. She was taken into custody and fined 2s 6d. Laura Enemy of the Griffin beerhouse, The Mount, pleaded guilty to obstructing the police and endeavouring to liberate Laura Westley. Fined 10s 6d or 7 days."
On the evidence of the story above and the Ipswich Rate book, which notes "license lost", it was evidently not a well-run pub.
