We visited early April, having booked a table for 16 people. The atmosphere was lovely as usual. Tables laid out nicely, but no birthday decorations as promised when I booked. I would recommend AVOIDING the carvery. The items of food were all piled up, with VERY hard potatoes underneath and enough gravy to sink a ship. Turkey was very dry... More

Came one lunchtime as was looking for a light lunch. Ended up having a cheese and Pickle sandwich. The coleslaw was amazing. My son had a child's fish and chips. Really good size and the fish was cooked perfectly. Service was very good from the manager Gary. All the team very friendly.

We haven't eaten here for a while, so decided to have our family get together here for a change. Lovely looking place with a nice atmosphere. Nice selection to choose from the menu. We had a mixture of starters, mains and deserts, everyone really enjoyed it. We look forward to returning

We went for a late lunch and were greeted by a lovely welcome and choice of table. Very pleasant surrounding and atmosphere. Plenty of custom but not noises or hurried service. Good choice of menu plus £12 set menu. We chose from the board and shared a seafood selection with an extra salad and sweet potato fries, all to share.... More

A popular inn on the outskirts of Ipswich, good menu at very reasonable prices. Food was good and despite a very busy time the service could not be faulted. Nice outside eating area and large car park.They also do breakfasts.

Visited for an early evening meal for my birthday. The service was great. The food was pretty great too. Unfortunately they made a mistake with the pudding, served the wrong flavour ice-cream with my chosen dessert. I would happily go back and try something else on their menu as there were several mains that caught my eye.

Since when do restaurants and pubs now allow dogs to sit on bar stools at the bar. As we all know dogs are not the cleanest animals, so the last thing I want to see is a dogs backside sitting on a bar stool. It's bad enough letting them into restaurants and pubs but this has gone too far. Why... More
