The pub building mainly dates from the 16th and 17th centuries but may have some parts dating back to the 15th.

In 1823 coaches left here for Colchester & London on Monday, Wednesday & Friday afternoons at 4pm and coaches left here for Sudbury on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings at 11am. By 1839 no coaches were listed as stopping at the inn.

The Queen's Head is reported in Court Street from 1841 to 1891 and in 1911. Premises at 41 Court Street (the 1871 address) are not shown as a pub in the 1881 census.

It's shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
