Long Brackland used to stretch along what's now St John Street, to the pub may have been there.

A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 04 Sep in 1850 states that :

Robert METCALFE, of the Shoulder of Mutton Beer House (BSE), pleaded guilty to the charge of drawing beer during the hours of Devine service. Defendant hoped the Bench would be lenient towards him, as this was his first offence and the persons to whom he supplied beer were travellers. P.C. Hempstead said he saw two men from the country drunk in the house, and a woman of bad character, was with them. Fined £1 10s expenses.

Listed at 83 Long Brackland by 1844 and until at least 1861.
