Did you ever spend a night out in the former Gainsborough Hotel in Ipswich?

Formerly located in Sandy Hill Lane, the Gainsborough Hotel was once part of the community – with the first pint poured in the 1930s.

The pub, which was formerly known as the Piper's Vale, was very popular among locals. 

Our photos look back at nights out during the 1970s.

The pub closed its doors for one final time in 1994 and the building has since been demolished, joining a list of a number of former much loved pubs that no longer exist in Ipswich.
