The current building possibly dates from 1839 but replaced an earlier inn on the same site that dates back to the early 17th century. The pub was called the Swan before 1870.
The pub is shown on the 1958 OS map but seems to have gone by the 1968 and subsequent maps, so presumably closed between those dates.
Black Swan yard is adjacent.
May also be listed at Benton End.
By 1924 it was owned by Cobbolds Brewery (but was sold by 1961)
In 1836 John Clark (landlord of the Swan) was reported in the Ipswich Journal as being arrested for receiving a stolen horse.
