Now a private restaurant. The building dates from the 17th century.

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Cock & Pye's license was issued in 1853. Whether this was when it was first licensed or when it got a full (ie not just beer) license isn't clear, though the latter seems more probable.

The license was expired in 1911 as part of a scheme to reduce the number of alcohol licenses.

Note

The cock & pie may be a reference to peacock pie - a medieval dish for the wealthy.
