An Ipswich pub is hoping to stay open later into the night at weekends. 

The Mannings pub on the Cornhill has applied to Ipswich Borough Council to extend the hours it is able to sell alcohol on Fridays and Saturdays to 1am.  

A spokesperson for Mannings said: “We have submitted an application to extend our hours on a Friday and Saturday night to improve our guest experience. We hope this will provide another reason for people to visit Cornhill.”

The pub is currently open seven days a week until 11pm, except for Sunday when it closes at 10pm.  

The pub is known for its karaoke and live music events. Among these have been several recent performances by Essex vocalist Josie Derland. 

Mannings has an outside seating area, and is believed to date back to the 16th century. 

The pub is part of the Craft Union Pub Company, which manages pubs all over the country.
