Now offices, the building is thought to date from the late 17th century though some parts are earlier (late 14th century).
It was called the Angel before 1810 and then owned by John Aldrich. After 1810 it was owned by John Cobbold, the Ipswich brewer.
In 1874 carriers from pub included Bloomfield on Tuesday & Friday to Botesdale.
There was previous Greyhound Inn on the other side of Tavern Street which closed in about 1799.
