user reviews of the Blooming Fuchsia, Ipswich

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The only pub in the UK with this name and has some interesting period features particularly on the exterior walls. Unfortunately this pub has become a victim of Pubmaster/Punch Taverns' policy of failing to invest to keep the pub alive and then pulling the plug when it inevitably becomes unprofitable. There is now an application on the table to demolish the pub and turn it into 6 houses. Each time a pub of this kind disappears, a little bit of our history and heritage goes with it. Given the complete inactivity of the local CAMRA when it comes to pub closures, the only gleam of hope for this pub comes from the election of Ben Gummer as the new MP for Ipswich. During the election campaign he sent out leaflets blaming Labour for the tide of pub closures in Ipswich, and pledging to put a stop to them. This will be his first test- the council planners will be asked to decide whether the local community needs 6 houses (and lots of money for Punch) more than it needs its local pub.
