The building dates from the early 18th century. It appears on the 1904 OS map, but seems to be gone by the 1926 (and subsequent) sheet, so presumably closed between 1922 (last directory reference found) and 1926.

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 King's Arms.
