Ipswich Grasshopperhistorical era: Victorian / Edwardian
CAMRA Ipswich & East Suffolk branch.last updated 13/08/2017
This pub appears in the 1861 census; although no house numbers are given, it is known to have been on the south side of Bramford Road, 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.
