This was a conversion from the original Station master's house; carried out during the early 1990's. The pub lasted for only a couple of years. The building was a part of the original station complex which was designed by Sancton Wood - architect and surveyor (1816-1866)

Opened as a terminus from Ipswich in nov 1847; until Newmarket completed in 1849. It was owned by Eastern Union Railway EUR - then GER

Not to be confused with >the Railway Hotel (once the Linden Tree).

The GER was formed in 1862 by amalgamation of the Eastern Counties Railway with smaller railways: the Norfolk Railway, the Eastern Union Railway, the Newmarket and Chesterford Railway, the East Norfolk Railway, the Harwich Railway, the East Anglian Railway and the East Suffolk Railway among others.
