13 Market Hill
The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Prince of Wales's license was issued in 1703.
The license was expired in 1925, as part of a scheme to reduce the number of alcohol licenses. It's now a private residence.
The building dates from the 16th century.
(Note: Compare landlord information with the Swan, Market Hill.)
The 1791 Universal British Directory lists a Swan in Woodbridge, which has been entered under Swan, Market Street, but it could refer to this pub, which was previously called the Swan.
It's shown on this OS town plan of 1881.
