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.

Former commercial & family hotel.
The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Railway 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.
Also listed in Station Rd in 1874.
It was called the Railway Tavern when it was opened. The local name for the Railway Hotel used to be the Ram. A row of houses near the hotel is called Ram Row."Inns of the Suffolk Coast" by Leonard P Thompson, 1969**
