Ipswich Sorrel Horse
also traded as as: Sorrell Horsehistorical era: late 20th century
closed about 1977
121 Fore St
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:
