The building dates from approximately 1860 and stands on the site of an earlier pub.

Appears as the New Hotel on the 1885 OS map.

A report in the Ipswich Journal** on Mar-24 in 1877 when John Webb was the landlord reports that :

John Webb stood as a character witness for John Pizzey landlord of the Black Boy who was found guilty of theft.

In 1840 -1891 was listed in 40 Northgate St.

1891-2 White's Directory lists the New Hotel and also a beerhouse keeper at 40a.

In Sep/Oct 1982 edition of Last Orders*** it was reported that Don & Angie Pepperell took over New Inn (GK) in May with three new handpumps installed.
