This was a large comfortable locals' pub. It dated back to at least 1782, when an inquest at the inn was reported in the Ipswich Journal.
Closed at end of September 2011 and sold to developers. As of late 2016, a number of houses have been built on the land behind the building; by early 2018 the pub itself had been renovated and turned into two homes.
The pub is shown on this old OS map from about 1903 (interactive map)
