The food is always good here, unfortunately its so busy, you dont really get the service and its a bit 'rules and regs' they only serve food between 12-2 so if you are not there at 12 forget it. Unless you book way in advance.

Excellent food, service, and atmosphere! Lots of interesting history in this pub! Great location near the river and North Sea in Felixstowe. Beautiful view from the front porch tables.
