The Plough dates back to at least 1780, when the Ipswich Journal reported:

January 8th 1780

On Monday evening the members of the anti American club met at the Plough Inn at Sudbury and unanimously condemned to the flames the London Evening Post, printed by J.Miller and known here by the appellation of the lying paper on account of the inflammatory pieces constantly inserted therein.

The pub is reported variously at 32, 33 and 34 Melford Road.

In 1830 it's listed in Mill Hill (though this may be an earlier tavern of the same name?)
