One year on, the vendors cannot find a buyer for their 'fantastic' hotel/redevelopment opportunity. The problem seems to be that it's not just the pub which is for sale , but a large annexe on the back which is supposed to turn the pub into a restaurant and hotel. I think the pub on its own would find a buyer- after all, it's been viable as a pub longer than any other pub in town, and Pubmaster's sign attesting to this just before they sold it off anyway is still in place. However, no one wants to do a deal in creating a giant hotel/restaurant complex in this location. Dodgy property deals are not prospering just now, and it would be nice to think that as a result Ipswich's oldest pub might survive.

Ipswich's oldest surviving pub in a rambling old listed building. A few months ago the owners applied for permission to close it down and turn it into a restaurant. Naturally, mindful of its history and heritage, this permission was immediately granted. Now the pub has closed and has boards on the wall saying that it's for sale as a redevelopment opportunity with permission for conversion into a restaurant or hotel.My dream is that it will be bought up and restored as a fantastic pub- its location near the resurgent docks means it has huge potential in the right hands.
