“ The Station Hotel sits proudly across from Ipswich Train station and is ideally suited for commuters and supporters alike. The Station Hotel is currently the main away team pub of choice when playing against Ipswich Town FC due to its proximity to the train station and the football Stadium. There are 14 letting rooms which are currently in use, although a sparkle in this area would help increase occupancy rates further. The main trade space has undergone a period of redecoration within the past couple of years and offers a great, open plan relaxed environment to enjoy a drink or a bite to eat. There is a large central island bar and commercial catering kitchen. The site also benefits from parking for around 10 cars. There is a basement bar area which leads out onto the terrace and grassland to the side of the river. ”
