Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Station Rd

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. interactive map
