About The Bull
The Bull Inn is a 16th century coaching inn ideally located in the centre of charming Woodbridge. The property overlooks Market Hill including the imposing Shire Hall and the impressive St Mary’s Church.
The current building has been extended over the years and stands on the site of an older hostelry of the same name. The present building dates from the days when it was a posting house for the stagecoaches which ran from London via Colchester, Ipswich and then onto Norwich via Wykham Market.
Around the bar, you will see parts of the original timber-frame which pre-dates the current structure and could possibly date from the 15th century in common with several other buildings around the market square.
The earliest official reference of The Bull appears in the Ipswich Journal in 1726 whilst in the records of 1734 it is referred as an “ancient inn”, formerly known as The Pyed Bull and The Black Bull.
