I was slightly intimidated by the piercings on the barmaids face but the friendly welcome from both her and the young man who served us was quite the reverse The freedom to choose just a selection of starters and a good range of reasonably priced wines made us feel as relaxed as it is possible ... I mean! Hardys Stamp... More

Only reason to go is that it is a short walk from Fox's Marina. Much better to take a pushbike into Ipswich and enjoy one of many pubs / restaurants there

Only good if you like steak, if not the menu options are awful. Service was slow and all of the chips were raw. For the prices you expect a lot more, as its not exactly 'cheap and cheerful'.

The inside of this place is reasonably nice. The food was ok as were the drinks but the inside at breakfast was slow. They were nice just seemed to drag their feet. Stayed at the hotel so drive passed the side. The paint is all flaking away and generally in need of decoration. Was off putting. Had o known I... More

So this evening my partner and I went here for a meal before going to a show at the Regent. I've been here a few times and actually went the beginning of the month. I have been a few times and normally it's pretty good but on this occasion it wasn't. I don't know whether they have changed the chefs... More

Having booked a table as we assumed on a Saturday lunch this would be busy, we were so wrong which speaks volumes! We were not greeted by anyone at all, so decided to just get a table. There was already someone at the bar waiting to be served, he had been there 5 mins unattended. I had to go &... More

Stayed here a few times now with work and as a single traveller. Great that you can get a table in the bar and able to order food before someone takes your table 😊 Staff very helpful and a tasty steak each time I have eaten here. Also well kept beer. Building and decoration ready for a little TLC but... More

Booked table in advance so seated fairly quickly. Part we were in not very inviting, could do with some sort of curtains or drapes on the large window. Had to wait a while for the food but it was all very tasty so that was good, can recommend the mixed grill !
