Known to have been open at least as early as 1781, when it was mentioned in a report in the Ipswich Journal** as follows:

October 20th 1781
Last Saturday a hay stack belonging to Mr Bowers at the Ram Inn, Long Melford was set on fire by a boy carelessly throwing a sqib, it was luckily discovered and extinguished before doing much damage, the consequences of which would have been dreadful as it was near a large stack of wood surrounded by buildings.
