Now a private residence and shops.
The building dates from the 16th century.
The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Ship's license was issued in 1843. 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 1908 as part of a scheme to reduce the number of alcohol licenses.
