Located just outside Ixworth, the building dates from the late 17th century. Due to its closer proximity to Ixworth than to the main Pakenham settlement, it has sometimes been recorded in the former village.
The pub is shown on the 1958 OS map but not on the 1974 or subsequent sheets, so presumably closed between those dates.
