I love this place, it is just so full of great beers, great beer festivals and the biggest pint of pork scratchings you will ever see, this is a must for anyone that loves real ale, or you can have something off the fizzy list if you like !

You can order an Indian... More

The frequent beer festivals put this pup as a beacon for Real Ale in Ipswich. A large selection of beers are complimented with great service, and vibe. The only downside being the fruit machines and TV screens which can be avoided.

Had a short visit to Ipswich and wanted to try a local real ale pub. My first choice from reading the trip advisor reviews was the The Dove Street Brewery and I can see and taste why this place is highly rated. A great selection of real ale and I tried a few. The service and advice was excellent. It... More
