The building dates from the late 18th century. The pub was originally a wooden hut on another site (possibly Gaymer's Lane). The name was changed from the New Inn to remember Thomas Cavendish, who was born in Trimley St Martin and was the first man to command a ship that deliberately circumnavigated the world (previous circumnavigators had done so accidentally). It was apparently renamed to celebrate his return to Trimley from his circumnavigation.
Found closed and empty when visited in July 2015. It appears to have been empty for a few months. In August 2015 it was seen to have had all signage removed, with building work going on, so appears to have closed permanently.
