The 1963-1977 Ipswich licensing records show that the Sorrel Horse was open at least as late as 1977.

This premises was listed in the 1844 White's Suffolk Trades Directory with carriers operating from the inn to Fakenham, Felixstowe, Kirton, Levington, Walton.

The building dates from the 17th century, though it was much altered in the 18th.
