The old Railway Hotel now houses a nursery, after some time as a restaurant.
The pub appears on the 1969 OS map but seems to have vanished by the 1982 (and subsequent) sheets, so presumably closed in between.
On the 1st 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.
It was recorded in Wellington Street in 1865 (maybe an older name for Station Road?)
