'TOLLY
COBBOLD

[ALES & SPIRITS']

The ghost of 'Ales & Spirits' in capitals can be seen below and leads us up, beneath the stylish 'Gil Sans-style' three-dimensional Tolly Cobbold trade name, to the ghost sign "Cobbold's" (the pre-1957 brewery to which this pub was a tied house). This echoes the ghost sign of the same lettering visible on the Rose Inn in St Peters Street and The Globe Inn in St Georges Street.

The famous white horse sculpture above front door of the Great White Horse Hotel in Tavern Street, Ipswich is well-known to passers-by. However, an original 18th century white horse was removed from this location and now stands on top of a column outside the White Horse Inn at Tattingstone, which is a 17th Century Grade II listed building.
