Had been a pub since the seventeenth century but no one at all appears to give a shit as it is gutted and trashed to be turned into an Indian restaurant.

Obviously a pub that needs to get back to its glory days. Pleasant enough, and music wasn't bad. No real ale though, which sounds like a down point from before. The Kronenbourg wasn't bad though - we shut our eyes and thought we could be in France!

The rose and crown is now under new management. It now has a new and fresh look. we have great plans in the pipe line and hope to soon start serving great home cooked food.

The Emperor has improved by leaps and bounds since Nigel left it, and hopefully the same will happen here. This goes to show, you can't run a successful pub by sticking a few real ales on the bar and letting everything else go to seed. As I said in my previous reviews, this pub has been scruffy, freezing cold and dark on my visits- on one occasion so cold I couldn't stay to finish my beer. It really wouldn't have taken much investment to whitewash the walls, stick up a few traditional pub signs by way of decor, turn on the lights and central heating and offer a bit of pub grub. Anyone wanting to run a successful real ale pub should pop along to the Dove or Fat Cat to see how it's done - it's not rocket science, but great real ale isn't the only thing on offer, customers need to feel comfortable enough to want to stay. Hopefully this pub will be taken on by someone who is able to offer west Ipswich the great real ale pub it really needs.
