Having been satisfied with our first visit to the Sorrel Horse Inn we had no hesitation in making a repeat booking when returning to the area. We were not disappointed, the room was clean and spacious and opened on to the car park so easy access for the dogs. The staff were welcoming and helpful, the beers and food wholesome... More

We had not visited Suffolk for 18 months, so when we arrived this was one of the first placed we went to. As we walked in, the barman recognised us, and directed us to where we could find an empty table. This was about 7 p.m. and the place was full, Sunday lunch was still being ordered. The main menu...

My grandson and his wife live in Ipswich and we go to visit them when we can. We've stayed in a few different place, all fairly good, but we just wanted something more welcoming and homely. We found the Sorrel Horse Inn on the Internet and thought why not it's 15 minutes from my grandson's. When we drove on to... More

I called to see if this establishment could accommodate 4 people, one of whom would remain in her wheelchair, for Sunday Lunch. The phone rang quite some time, before a female answered with an unfriendly toned voice..and just said "hello", after I asked if they could accommodate a wheelchair user, the unfriendly voice, just said, "we can but it will...

This is one of my favourite places to eat in the Ipswich area. The food is always superb.......great portion sizes and you can taste the home-cooked quality of it. I have been here with a party of 6 or more before and every single person has always loved their meal. It is always very busy here on a weekend so... More

A lovely pub to spend a afternoon with the children. A great play area, the food is always good (nothing special) Lasagne is yummy. Lots of choice on ales not so good on lagers. One of the best pubs around for us! We will definatly be back again. Worth a visit

We had one evening meal here after being recommended for fresh cooking. It was a Friday evening and the place was heaving and staff really pushed to the limit and working very hard, so there was an understandable wait for the food. Some other diners didn't seem so happy and said so. The food was fresh and main dishes were... More

Used this pub to stay the night before my wedding with close family and friends and was a star find. Fantastic food and rooms were clean and well equipped. Was not expecting such nice rooms for the price, friendly staff aswell. Would recommend and will be back soon.

I have been at the Sorrel Horse for 27 years and have never had an experience like when this family stayed. Would you let your child drag the mattress and duvet into a communal bathroom and allow them to sleep on the floor? Would you let your young child play on a personal computer game in the car park past... More
