The former Sorrel Horse now houses a mixture of residential & office units.
Very old photographs show that the pub had a single-storey frontage onto Fore Street, but this has been either rebuilt or remodelled since.
The pub can be seen here on an 1881 map:
The 1963-1977 Ipswich licensing records show that the Sorrel Horse was open at least as late as 1977.
