A mid-17th century building, with 20th century additions.

The license wasn't renewed in 1960, so it must have closed in that year or 1959.

A report in the Ipswich Journal*** on 03 Jun in 1837 stated that Robert Koipe COBBOLD of the Eye Brewery was retiring from business & was looking to sell various Inns & Public Houses including the Queen's Head, Bottesdale.

A report in the Ipswich Journal** in May 1840 states :

Died on the 27th April 1840, at his brothers at the King’s Head Inn, Botesdale, aged 46, Mr Robert Braddle, late waiter at the Angel, Bury.
