Former Lacons pub that was rebuilt in about 1910.
The chap in the old photo is a Mr. Vincent who once had the inn.
The Stow licensing book held at the Ipswich Record Office has a letter from Lacon's to the effect that they were delicensing the pub in August 1962 and selling the building to the tenant, Mr WA Vincent (presumably the Mr Vincent in the old photo)?

Cock fighting (usually in a pit) was probably a regular feature near here (typically organised on Shrove Tuesday and other holidays), and hence the name was widespread until the activity was banned in 1795.
