Partly dating from the 16th century; most of the building dates from the 17th, probably as a replacement for medieval parts.
In 1861 listed at White Horse Rd
A report in the Ipswich Journal** in May 1840 states that :
To be sold at auction, that old established well accustomed public house, called Laxfield White Horse, with gardens, orchard, barn, stables, and 10 acres of very superior arable and pasture land. The above well deserves the attention of public brewers, of the dealing man, being well situated, abutting upon the high road, at an easy distance from several good market towns.
