Also reported as being at Buttermarket. In 1832 it was advertised to let in the Bury & Norwich Post.

A report in the Ipswich Journal** on Apr-03 in 1841 when Robert Shelly was the landlord states that:

Shelly was a witness in a case of robbery and wounding. Two men were found guilty and sentenced to transportation for life.

The building was demolished in 1909; presumably it closed shortly before that:

A report in Suffolk Free Press*** on January 13th 1909 stated:

Work has started on the demolition of the " Old George Inn" at Sudbury in preparation for the erection of a large store for Messrs Walker. Six tenders were recieved, the lowest was by George Grimwood for £1462. The Old George was purchased for £900.
