Ipswich Running Buck
also traded as as: Canes, Buck, Roe-Buck?historical era: late 20th century
13-15 St Margaret's Plain
This was one of Ipswich's most ancient inns; one of only 24 listed in a town assessment of 1689.
There was also a Buck's Head pub nearby in Upper Orwell Street. Some references, especially where they just mention the "Buck" may be confused between the two.
The building is now used as a religious drop-in centre after a period as Canes Nightclub.
The pub is shown (though not named) on this old OS map of 2017. larger map
