The pub is shown on the 1967 OS map but appears to have gone by the 1985 sheet, so presumably closed between those dates.
A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 24 Jun in 1859 states that :
"Auction of the old-licensed Inn, designated the White Hart, Chilton Street, Clare. It comprises a Dwelling House, containing a Bar, Tap-Room, 3 pantries, kitchen, parlour, cellar, cola-house & 3 chambers; good stabling, cart shed, roomy yard & 2 excellent gardens. This Estate contains a frontage of 142' next the street, and is in the occupation of Mr Thomas BOUGHEN. Further particulars from W.B. FREELAND Esq."
