Really nice feel to the place, has several little rooms and a wide drink selection. Also nice to drink from a glass in the town centre unlike several other establishments. Will be regular when going for a couple of social drinks.

We stumbled upon this place yesterday before the football, and how glad we where. 2 hand pubs, beer was well looked after. Massive menu of craft beers. Reasonable prices. Staff friendly and knowledgeable. Now our number1 pub when we play in Ipswich

The best thing I can say is that whilst in there you don't think you are in Ipswich. Great beer, superb service and street food Fridays is a great idea. Top marks.
