This place was Cobbolds old house they were the great Ipswich brewer who owned the football club and several hundred local pubs, the house was bought and turned into a pub well sort of, to give a feeling of age they took the plaster of a 1900s wall and took the plaster board down to expose 2 by 6 joists. This so called pub has people who tie there jumpers around there waist who pay 15 plus for a for pieces of seafood you can get from a supermarket for a couple of pound. Some people may like it or dont understand what a fraud this house is, no way is it a pub it fails in so many ways.
If you like drinking in a building site then so be it, I dont.

A pig to find, a bit widdily-piddingly inside but worth it beer wise.

What a fantastic real Ale pub. Went in on a Friday evening, had a live acoustic band playing so was busy.
lovely talkative staff and landlady, great selection of Ales brewed on-site apparently and the pub itself was really well decorated.

Didnt order food but, did see meals going to tables in the restaurant area, and looked fantastic, will be aiming to come back for a dinner soon! however must add, the Scotch egg and dip was fantastic though!

Just what Ipswich needed, a proper quality pub. what a fantastic find.

I've drunk here (on and off) since the Brewery Tap very first opened, so I was more than a little pleased when the Cliff Quay Brewery opened.

However, the pub itself was disappointing: irregular opening times, disinterested and ignorant staff etc. Obviously the brewer was concentrating on the brewery; but the pub suffered.

Since a couple took over the management of the pub it has been transformed. With "him" in the kitchen and "her" behind the bar and a full complement of enthusiastic staff it's a well run operation!

The food (both meals and bar snacks) is of a high standard and the beer quite excellent (there are plenty of guests beers as well as the brewery's own.

A recent mini-beer festival shows real commitment and I hope they have the success they deserve.

It's just a shame that they are a little of the beaten track as for many customers this means driving.

We went there on a Tuesday evening at 7.30pm. in April 2010. We were the only customers for the first 30 minutes and, because it's a bit of a barn of a place, it was rather depressing. That's not the fault of the licensees, with pleasant service and a good pint. So it's best to choose your evening, perhaps when there is music or at the weekend.
