The White Horse closed in May 1985. The Cat & Mouse opened 1 Dec 1985 and lasted about 8 years. Now residential.
A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 03 Jun in 1837 stated that Robert Koipe COBBOLD of the Eye Brewery was retiring from business & was looking to sell various Inns & Public Houses including the White Horse, Wetheringset.
A CAMRA local pub guide in 1992 described the pub as follows:
The interior has a cottage-like feel, with extremely low beams. To the left of the entrance is a tiny parlour room with (bench seats and) a serving hatch in the wall. The main bar, with its flagstone floor lies to the right of this (towards the rear of property) and although more roomy is still liable to get packed - such is the popularity of the pub. An adjoining room to rear of the bar serves as a family area (with board games, sofas and comfy chairs).
