The pub appears in licensing records up to 1967 (the latest available) and it closed in 1969, according to a caller to Lesley Dolphin's BBC Radio Suffolk programme.

It was bought after closure by actor Stratford Johns, who lived here until his death in 2002.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
