I've given it 5 stars because despite not being a high end gastro pub and not in the best area of Ipswich to be wandering around in the evening they deserve it for service and atmosphere and provision. The place was welcoming and friendly as you should expect from a local pub and the menu... More

Typical pub food which includes good selection of sandwiches. Friendly staff, good beer and atmosphere. Great for sports with numerous large screens and projector. This includes sky/bt sports. Great location in the town centre.

Had lunch with a friend yesterday. He had Sausage and Mash and I had Bacon and cheeseburger. He said his food was good and I must say the burger was ideally cooked for my taste i.e. well done and crispy bacon. Not big portions but enough to satisfy and for two meals for £8.49 good value. My drink of a... More
