A pretty fabulous pub. Great locally–brewed beers, cool music, beer gardens with lovely views and amazing food mostly made from scratch on the premises. Check out our Orwell Reserve airdried ham, homemade pasta & icecream amongst other beauties.... We have some wonderful rooms which can be booked out for meetings, parties, dinners or whatever....also, cool chickens, ducks, guineafowl & quail for your avian viewing pleasure....

Tolly Roger and Cliff Quay are brewed just behind The Tap. See the menu for more beers →

Seriously good food and beer from Ipswich & Suffolk

We're a freehouse — which means we can buy our beers from whoever we want, we always have a good range of locally brewed stuff as well as other English beers from further afield. We've got a fab Atom Dark Matter on draught as well as a fine pale ale from Almasty. Sorry, no massive brewery products here at the mo....

We have several different types of pickled egg ready to be eaten - from the classic Tolly Pickled Egg, a Calvors & Curry, an Aspall & Chilli and Garlic Ale, Smoked Egg & Smoked Vinegar to our special Marmite & London Stout pickled eggs. ****STOP PRESS**** Our Marmite & Aspall Cyder Pickled Egg won Best Egg in the World Pickled Egg Championship in 2012 & came Second in 2014. Woooo wooo!!! Our sausage rolls are fast becoming legendary and regularly sell out, scotch eggs make frequent but short appearances.

Our chickens, ducks, quail and guineafowl supply a lot of our eggs in the sunnier months, our raised pork pie won second prize at the Aldeburgh Food Festival, our beer pickled eggs were awarded Most Inspired Bar Product by Olive Magazine this year as well!

Chicken & Duck World got decimated by Monsieur le Fox a coupla months ago. It will be repopulated very soon. As soon as I've secured the perimeter fence.

We use Hillfarm Oil from Heveningham in most of our dressings, dishes & mayos. It's fab!

We're pretty chuffed with the breadth & quailty of lovely food products that Suffolk grows & produces and try to show that in our menus. Just ask if you'd like to see something particular on our menu or would like something for a special occasion.
