I take issue with the bloke who said he would not take his wife there. My better half would love it. Full of character(s) and well brewed, well kept beer. I shall return when I can.

This place tries to look oldy worldy, which it does to a certain degree, It is a bit outdated and tired looking, but great beers on offer

Lets be clear, this is not the place to go for a romantic evening, first date, fine dining or treat for the missus. It is located in an area of Ipswich that feels distinctly tricky in the evenings and you may have to play British...More

St Jude's is by far my favorite pub in Ipswich and one of the nicest ones I've ever been to. The atmosphere is unique, people are friendly and you get to meet some really interesting characters there :)

this is the best "proper beer" house in the local area- different types and you can try them before buying - they brew their own and the pub is a great place to socialise.

We cycled to Ipswich and stayed a bit out of town. Cycled into Ipswich for the evening and St Judes was recommended. We asked where we could park the bikes and the (excellent) barmaid just said - "we're quiet tonight, leave 'em in the bar?"....More

Great little pub. Super atmosphere. Interesting spooky decor, but unpretentious with it. Very much a real ale drinkers' pub, in other words people with taste! But everyone can feel welcome in this friendly pub.
