user reviews of the Kingfisher, Ipswich

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Refurbished and reopened yet again, this place keeps making curtain calls. Considering it is in something of a toilet estate, it is rather good. Sports themed, huge and child-friendly, it also has a half decent jukebox. I'm pretty sure it normally has two ales on pump. Okay, it isn't great, but you will end up here if you are a local, and, though no longer one, I have a certain affection for this ugly offspring of the boozer and the day care centre.

Unfortunately, this pub is now shut, I'm not sure why. I was last in there about two months ago and it was an unpretentious quite family friendly pub with children's room, pool table and, errr, hand car wash. The closure of this means that there is only one pub between the Village of Belstead and the docks/railway staion. That is the Belstead Arms, make of that what you will... The Harlequin has been pulled down at Stoke Park shops to make way for an Asda, The Old Bell shut a couple of years back despite being centuries old and no pub was ever built in Pinewod. The Drum and Monkey by Portman Road has re-opened but I don't fancy getting glassed and firebombed by football 'fans'... O tempora, O mores.

At least it's a local pub with local people in it and there's usually one hand pump lurking among the fizzy pop. Now has regular tribute acts on. At least they're trying. Big projection TV in back room, but it's hard to tell who's playing as the bulb is past its lifetime so the colours are all wrong, and you can't tell the score as it flashes up 'bulb life exceeded' in the top left corner just where the score goes ...
