Now residential, the Greyhound dates from circa 1600, but was much altered in the late 18th and early 20th centuries.
A report in the Ipswich Journal** in Sep 1815 states :
To be sold by auction, the household furniture and other effects, of Mr John Emerson, at the Gosbeck Greyhound, (declining the public line); comprising of 4 feather beds, bedsteads and bedding, tables, chairs, 8 day clock, kitchen requisites, washing utensils, and sundry articles.
