Demolished 1972 for modern development.

(Originally listed as opening in 1873, but landlord entries for Suffolk are now listed from 1839.)

A report in the Ipswich Journal** in Feb 1875 states :

The Old Suffolk Hotel: This formerly much frequented and excellently conducted place of resort has just been disposed of by Messrs. Mercer and Peacock, to Mr J Nelson, for £90, the entire building to be cleared away in 14 days.
(This could be a reference to an earlier build and may be linked to the opening (or reopening) of 1873?)
