Ipswich Grasshopperhistorical era: Victorian / Edwardian
CAMRA Ipswich & East Suffolk branch.last updated 11/04/2015
This pub appears in the 1861 census; although no house numbers are given, it is known to have been on the south side, possibly at about number 49. We would love to identify the precise location; if you know, please let us know.
David H also tells us that there was still a Grasshopper Pub on Bramford Road in 1865, but it was not listed by 1904 or 1937.
There was also a grocer's shop in Prince's Street called the Grasshopper which is sometimes thought to have been a pub, but currently our best guess is that it probably wasn't.
