Local rumours suggest that this old pub, on the edge of the marsh, was once a centre for local smugglers.

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Black Horse's beerhouse license was issued in 1843. It got a full license on February 6th 1961.

The building seems to have been abandoned for some years and is looking quite derelict.
