The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Newmarket Ram

Newmarket Ram

Closed pre-1815

opened pre-1768

High St

grid reference TL 644 634

According to Alfred Hedges' book "Inns and Inn Signs of Norfolk and Suffolk, the Ram stood where the Rutland Arms is now situated. The Ram itself apparently replaced an even earlier inn whose name is unknown.

The Newmarket Pubs website tells us:

There was an Inn here earlier but the name has never been found. The Inn was renamed after the Earl of Offord (an eccentric who had his coach drawn by stags) was chased by a pack of hounds and sought refuge in the yard of the Inn. The word "ram" being associated with a strong scent, the Inn was re-named The Ram.
