63 Benton St
The Falcon was called the Barley Mow until about 1844. Reputedly the name changed at about the time that the pub was purchased by Falcon Brewery (of Ipswich), who liked to call most of their pubs by that name. Not to be confused with Barley Mow listed in Bridge St (later the Anchor).
The building is now residential.
It's shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
