The building dates from the early 19th century, but was much altered in the 20th.

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the East Suffolk's license was issued in 1843. However, the hotel dates back a good while before this; it's recorded that Charles II stayed here in 1668.

The license was surrendered in April 1977, when it was transferred to a private members' club, the Festival Club, which may have been in the same building.

The hotel is shown (but not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
