In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

grid reference TM 388 778

On the first of June 1859, the East Suffolk Railway Line was opened from Ipswich to Lowestoft; the pub (or at least its name) probably dates from about that time. The name changed from the Railway Hotel to the Station Hotel in 1887.

Historically it's listed as a family & commercial hotel & posting house.

It's now used as offices for NFU Mutual after some years as a social club.

In 1874 the pub was listed in Bungay Road (an older name for Station Road).

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
