Fabulous bar for beer enthusiasts. A great range of styles on draught, and an emphasis on Belgians on bottle - with seasonal specials too, not just standard lines. Carried 2 cask lines - nothing special but eminently drinkable, and much better than you'll find nearby. Best bar for beer in Ipswich, by a margin!

Came in for a drink twice today so cant judge the food. Like the impressive craft beer range and also happy to see decent 0% options from Big Drop. Despite being busy got served nicely- Thank you A.T. Team

Lovely little place with several rooms you can sit in with a 2nd bar that i guess is used on busy nights. Has a covered outside area as well on the street. Also has free WiFi and I had a good connection so no complaints there. Music was a nice level so i could make calls easy. Pity they don't do food other than bar snacks and sausage rolls but not every where can I know.

Been popping in here recently on a Saturday for a couple of drinks, good choice of wine and beer and a lovely sausage roll to snack on too. Staff very nice and polite - would recommend.

Fantastic venue. Nestled away just off the main shopping area this pub has an excellent selection of beers. There are many keg offerings, a couple of cask beers and fridges full of wonderful Belgian bottles (each with their own matching glass, so done properly). Ample outside seating and plenty of room inside too. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the beers. There is a food offer but as we didn’t order any we can’t really comment. Would highly recommend a visit, we didn’t want to leave and would have happily stayed for the entire day.
