About the Pub

Historic Interest

A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 27 Nov in 1863 states : <blockquote>Died, 25.11.1863 at Long Melford, Mr Robert HARRIS, aged 51, for many years, landlord of the Hare Inn, Long Melford. A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 26 Oct in 1869 states that : <blockquote>The licensed Vctuallers Tea Association advertised the sale of tea via its Suffolk Agents. This was a response to the irregular sale of Wine by Grocers & included a reference to C.B. GLASSCOCK of the Hare Inn, Long Melford. A late 18th or early 19th century facade covers a much older building. The pub is known to date back at least to 1793, when the Bury & Norwich Post reported the sale of farmland taking place on the premises. A Victorian brewery was once located here.
