Memories of the Lord Nelson Pub in 1974
Are you pictured in this gallery from a night at Lord Nelson pub in Ipswich over 40 years ago?
The Lord Nelson pub in Ipswich will evoke fond memories for many. These pictures were captured on a evening at the pub in 1974.
Situated in Fore Street, the sites building dates from the 17th century and the pub was originally called Noah’s Ark.
The name changed to Lord Nelson in 1805 when Admiral Nelson was appointed High Steward of Ipswich.
Purchased by Adnams & Co in 1989 from Tolly Cobbold, it underwent a complete refurbishment in 1996.
Still open today, the pub was taken over by new managers in 2017, and has a food menu, courtyard garden, and Sunday roast dinners.
