Our picture shows what appears to have been the Bunch of Grapes if we've interpreted the old map correctly. If you can confirm or refute this or have any more information, please let us know.
We also beleive that this may have been previously called the Grapes and the 1881 and 1891 censuses list Grapes, not Bunch of Grapes. If you know that the Grapes was a separate building please let us know
Having examined the Hartismere licensing records from 1923 to 1962 and found no trace of this pub, we conclude it must have closed before 1923.
Street address from 1891 census. Shown at this location on the 1886 OS map.
A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 26 Oct in 1869 states that :
The licensed Victuallers Tea Association advertised the sale of tea via its Suffolk Agents. This was a response to the irregular sale of Wine by Grocers and included a reference to H.W. GAYFEYT of the Grapes, Redgrave.
