Closed January 2014. In September 2014, permission to convert the building from a pub to financial services offices was granted, though when visited in April 2015 it appeared to have a conservatory company in it.
It was an estate pub on outskirts of town with food and live sport on TV.
The Greyhound (its earlier name) pub is sometimes recorded as being located in the parish of Rushmere St Andrew, where it was until boundary changes expanded Ipswich.

Thanks to Len Woolf for helping tie the Greyhound and Garland together.

In the days when most publicans brewed their own ale, each brew had to be approved by the official ale-connors. To let them know a new brew awaited their testing, an ale garland would be hung out.
