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 am a 53 year old GP who last week had the misfortune to stay at this place along with my 2 young sons (12 and (14) and my 59 year old partner. We were going to Holland and I chose this place as somewhere to stay on the way out and back as we live in Cheshire. It looked... More

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

Myself and Sister took my mother to the Sorrel Horse, to reminisce on the area where our mother went to school and spent her early years of life. On arrival, my young hearted mother took a tumble in their busy Restaurant, this normally would have doomed our holiday, but thanks to the kindness and professionalism of both the Staff and... More

Having lived in the area for 5 years I've visited the Sorrel Horse many times. Probably once a month. We have never had a duff meal. The menu doesn't change very often and some people complain about this, but they are very good at what they do cook. The steak and ale pie is my favourite. A very generous serving... More

When travelling with our three terriers it can be difficult to find establishments that meet the needs of dogs and humans. The Sorrel Horse Inn managed both, the ground floor room offered easy access and was far enough from the pub to be quiet even on the night of England versus Italy. The room was clean and comfortable and well... More

A visit whilst visiting relatives in the area left us full, but not desperate to go back. Whitebait starters were good; chilli con carne/steak and ale pudding mains were OK; fruit crumble dessert we weren't overly impressed with. Kids meals were good, and the play area kept them entertained, but not sure we'll be visiting again in the near future.... More
