Little is known about this, apart from plaques on the walls saying that it's "The Old Alehouse". If you can tell us anything about it, please get in touch.
It's shown as a beerhouse on the 1884 OS map, so we can be sure it dates back at least that far.
A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 20 Apr in 1888 states that :
On 19 Apr 1888 at the Hadleigh Special Petty Session transfer of a license of a beerhouse on the New Road from George PRESTON to William PERCY; George Preston moving to the Wheel Inn Naughton to replace Gordon ROBERTS on the same day.
