The inn was located adjacent to Christchurch (on Ipswich side). In 1607 it had 3 rooms, a brew house, 3 rooms to rear (the backhouse), a stable, 2 bay hay-house, a garden and private lane (leading to house). Sometime soon after Thomas and Mary Love inherited the property in 1679 the house was destroyed by fire and then substantially rebuilt.

Most of the property was destroyed by a German bomb which was dropped on the town in 1942. The site is now used as a car-park.
