The 1921 OS map shows the inn at this location. No pub is shown on sheets from 1927 onwards, so presumably it closed between those dates. The pub is listed in the Rate Book that was in use from 1910 to the 1930s, but at some point has been marked as de-licensed, adding evidence to this estimated closure era.
A report in the Ipswich Journal** in Dec 1820 states :
To be sold by auction, at the King's Arms, Halesworth, on the 17th January 1821, as part of a large sale of Independent Inns and Public House, of established trade, in Suffolk, Lot 6., the Hawke public house at St. Peter's South Elmham. All the houses for sale were described as being substantially brick built, in excellent repair, extremely well accustomed, possessing every convenience for carrying on extensive trades, and are subjected to trifling outgoings.
