About the Pub

Pub with a good reputation for food close to river Deben.

Historic Interest

On the 1 June 1859 the East Suffolk Railway Line was opened from Ipswich to Great Yarmouth, though the pub dates from before that time - according to the 1904 Woodbridge licensing records its license was issued in 1840 (this was a full license, so it may even have been trading earlier as a beerhouse). It must have had an earlier name & been renamed the Railway Tavern to take advantage of the new line. A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 31 Mar in 1887 states that : The Railway Tavern, Melton, Nr Woodbridge to be sold by auction on 04 Apr 1887 with the effects of Mr H. SCARFE. Photographs of this pub and more historical information about it can be found at suffolkcamra.co.uk/pubs/pub/719
