This grade 2 listed building was partly demolished in 1903 for road-widening. The remaining parts are now used as offices.
The building dates from the 17th century. It was one of Ipswich's most ancient inns; one of only 24 listed on a town assessment of 1689.
It's shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
