This friendly bar has the feel of a country pub, despite only being a short walk from the town centre. Adjacent to one of the entrances of Christchurch park, it comprises a tiny snug at front, flanked by a large lounge and a small public bar. A larger room at the back leads to a small car-park. It usually offers up to 6 well-kept Real Ales on hand pump and attracts a varied clientèle. The patio drinking area at the front is also often popular (weather permitting).

An interesting and varied selection of good quality home-cooked food - including several fish options (they now serve food all seven days a week including breakfast, lunch and dinner). They offer a traditional pub menu - all home made.…

Footnote

Just inside the nearby Christchurch park is a memorial to nine "Ipswich martyrs" who were burnt at the stake for their adherence to the protestant faith, as part of the Marian persecutions. Two of the martyrs, Alexander Gooch (of Woodbridge) and Alice Driver (of Grundisburgh) were executed on 4th November 1558, just two weeks before Queen Mary's death.
