It stood on the corner of Commercial Road and New Cardinal Street.

At a Petty Sessions hearing on 29 September 1860, the Suffolk Hotel was refused a new spirits licence. Out of the twenty four applications only three establishments were granted licences.

Later it was called the Suffolk Stores off licence.

Building has since been demolished and eventually this site was redeveloped into part of a Royal Mail sorting office. New Cardinal street has been shortened, so no longer exists in this location.

It's shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
