Used to be a cosy 2 bar pub - one room very small with a dart board and the other long and narrow with low beamed ceilings and food often available. Pub sign still hanging in 2007.
NB this pub is sometimes listed as being in Stoke By Nayland, as Thorington Street hamlet is actually part of that parish but located about 2km to the south east.
A report in the Suffolk Chronicle** on 9th January, 1813 states:
Notice to the creditors of James POTTER
(subsequently further notice given on 06/02/1813)
"The stock of a public brewer to be sold via auction, 17/02/1813 under a commission of bankruptcy. The entire stock in trade, household furniture and other valuable effects of Mr James Potter, brewer and publican of Thorrington Street, near Stoke by Nayland...NB The stock of beer casks and utensils are most particularly deserving the attention of the public.
A report in the Bury & Norfolk Post & Suffolk Herald** on 17 Jun in 1884 states that :
Simon HITCHCOCK, of the Rose Inn, Thorrington Street, was found guilty of keeping his house open during prohibited hours - Fined 20s & 6s costs; paid.
