The building has been empty and very neglected for a good few years. In 2014 it was sold so perhaps something's going to be done with it now. Though since the station is long-gone and it's rather remote, it's unlikely to be a pub again.
Also listed at Railway Hotel, Railway Station & Haughley Old Street, and at Newton Road in 1881 census.
A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 11 Jan in 1887 states that :
John Wilding, Landlord of the Railway Tavern, Haughley, was returning from Stowmarket with his horse & cart. His cart overturned on a sharp corner & being a heavy man, he was hurt by the fall & sustained a broken shoulder.
