Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Melton Station Hotel

Melton Station Hotel

closed 20th April 1953

opened late-1850s

Wilford Bridge Rd

grid reference TM 287 504

In more recent years, the building was heavily remodelled, but still had recognisable features from old photographs. It was all-but completely demolished in May 2012.

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Station Hotel's license was issued in 1862. Whether this was when it was first licensed or when it got a full (ie not just beer) license isn't clear, though the latter seems more probable, as it was apparently built in the late 1850s.

It closed in 1943, when its license was transferred to the Woodbridge Bay Horse.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
