Now residential. Built 17th century.
It isn't clear when the name change occurred, but a document at the Suffolk Record Office lists the Hare & Hounds in 1981, so it must have been before that.
A report in the Ipswich Journal*** on 18 Jul 1741 states :
To be Sold, an ancient and well accustom'd Inn, exceedingly well situated in Framlingham, known by the Sign of the Dove, with good Stabling, Brewing-Office, and other Conveniences thereto belonging, now lett at the Rent of £8 10 shillings per Ann. All Freehold. Enquire of Mr Henry Sherham of Framlingham. N.B. The present Tenant is Tenant at Will
