A pint with the boys, in a bar full of noise – 1975 at The Crown
- Credit: Archant
We continue our journey down memory lane by visiting some of the popular pubs in and around Ipswich and today it’s the turn of The Crown in Claydon, way back in 1975.
Once a coaching inn, the core of the building dates back to the mid-16th century, while much of the rest of the building dates from the 19th and 20th centuries.
Back in 1975, the Greene King inn was a traditional pub before the Bury St Edmunds-based brewer converted it to the pub/restaurant it is today when it launched its Hungry Horse pub/restaurant chain in 1995.
Can you spot any familiar faces from our gallery, do you recognise the couple standing behind the bar back in 1975?
Can you recognise anyone from the row of gentlemen standing at the bar?
