Shown as a pub on the 1969 OS map but seems to be gone by the 1980 sheet, so presumably closed some time between those dates.
A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 13 Sep in 1800 states that :
At the sign of the Ship, near Beccles Bridge, there will be a Main of Cocks. From your humble servant, Henry BLUNDERFIELD.
On 8 May 1906 planning permission was approved for alterations to the Ship Inn.
