A short lived micro brewery was based here.

Known as just the Lion until the 1960s, when the "White" was prepended to the pub's name.

Now residential.

A report in the Ipswich Journal** in Sep 1855 states that :

To be sold by auction, at the Lion Inn, Wangford, a portion of the neat household furniture, featherbeds and bedding, and general household requisites, the property of Mr N Wright, who is changing his residence.

A report in the Ipswich Journal** in Feb 1865 states :

At the Halesworth Petty Sessions of 8th February 1865, the license to the Lion, Wangford, was transferred from James Terry to Langley Sewel Smythe
