The name probably refers to Admiral Vernon; resident of Nacton and victor in the Battle of Portobello (1739).

This premises was listed in the 1844 White's Directory with carriers then operating from the inn to Woodbridge.

Long-demolished; the 1883 OS map shows it as standing on the site of the defunct Odeon building.

Listed at 2 & 4 St Margaret's St., next to the Red Lion (formerly Lion) at 6. After this pub closed the Red Lion is listed at 4.
