Built 16th or 17th century, with early 19th century façade.
The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Queen's Head's license was issued in 1843. Whether this was when it was first licensed or when it got a full (ie not just beer) license isn't clear, though the latter seems more probable.
It closed in 1960 when the landlord died. Cobbold's decided that since there were four other pubs nearby, there was no point in it continuing to trade.
