Also listed at Cox Lane.

Permit Office Street address from the 1910 Ipswich Rate book. This street ran east from Cox Lane, roughly where the exit lane from the car park can be seen on today's maps.

Closure date recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923.

Not shown as a pub in the 1911 census.

Not sure if these are the same premises - but a report in the Ipswich Journal*** on 22 Mar 1740 states :

To be sold, a commodious Freehold House in St Mary At the Elms Parish, in Ipswich, known by the name of the Nag's Head, containing Four Rooms on a Floor, with good Cellars, a Stable and large Gardens, now in good Repair. Enquire of John or Charles Norris, both in Ipswich.

(The same two men were also looking to let the Half-Moon and Star)

A reference in the Ipswich Journal*** on 22 Dec 1744 to the Nag's Head in St Mary at Elms Parish, Ipswich.
