Ipswich Sorrel Horse

Ipswich Sorrel Horse

also traded as Sorrell Horse

Closed about 1977

121 Fore St

grid reference TM 169 441

Old photographs show that the pub had a small single-storey frontage onto Fore Street and a cart entrance, but this has since been rebuilt or remodelled.

The 1963-1977 Ipswich licensing records show that the Sorrel Horse was open at least as late as 1977.

The former Sorrel Horse site is now used for a mixture of residential housing and office units.

The pub can be seen here on an 1881 map:
