Newmarket Rd (Old A45 sliproad), IP28 6RD
An 18th century coaching inn which used to be on the main Bury-Newmarket road but has since been by-passed and is now on what's essentially a slip-road for the A14.
It was reported by West Suffolk CAMRA to be closed. This was confirmed by a visit in July 2016, when the building appeared abandoned. The building is to be auctioned in July 2017; it seems unlikely it will reopen as a pub.
The White Horse is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
