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.

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.
