Young lady serving was excellent great attitude and service did not get her name but know she likes spaniels. This is the ideal pub for a coffee break when walking the dogs. Had great flat whites and a very tasty homemade scotch egg.

A great local pub in Ipswich. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The steak and stilton pie was excellent as was the Bar Board (Sausage roll, scotch egg and the works). I would come back next time I was in Ipswich for sure.
