About the Pub

The pub's owner has allowed the community group to rent the pub for 12 months with an option to buy the property after that period. The pub opened for a few days both before and after Christmas 2019 serving local ales and now has regular hours Thu-Sun.

Historic Interest

A report in the Ipswich Journal on Aug-01 1846 when John & Chas Pengrift were the tenants states that: The Race Horse was owned byRobert Fisk, a Brewer who resided at Common Quay, Ipswich. Fisk leased the pub to the Pengrifts on condition that Fisk was the sole supplier. The Pengrifts had received beer from Mr Rogers of Beccles thus according to Fisk were breaking a contract, the court thought otherwise. The agreement in question was drawn up on the 27th Nov 1844. A report in the Ipswich Journal on 04 Jun in 1859 states the: Auction of the Racehorse Public House, Westhall, by order of the Mortgagee under a Power of Sale, now in the occupation of Mr Jesse HILL. A report in the Ipswich Journal on 06 Jul in 1861 states that: Auction of that well-accustomed Public House, the "Race Horse" Inn, Westhall, on behalf of the Estates of the late John TACON of Hinton, Gentleman, Deceased.
