In the 1990s, the pub had a good reputation for music. Though bands played in a cellar room which would have been a terrible potential death-trap had there been a fire.
Demolished for car showroom.
At a Petty Sessions hearing on 29 September 1860 The Albion Mills was refused a new spirit licence. Out of the twenty four applications only three establishments were granted licences.
The pub finally got a full license on February 2nd 1953.
A report in the Ipswich Journal** in Jan 1875 states :
At the Ipswich Petty Sessions of 31st December 1874 the license for the Albion Mills, Woodbridge Road, was transferred from Isaac Berry to James Roper.
