A group of us visited for an evening meal, on a dreary drizzly evening. The welcoming of the log fire was very appreciated, and the people behind the bar very friendly. The food was lovely and plenty of it. I loved the decor, and the outside play area for the children looked great fun. There was lots of outdoor seating,... More

Country pub plenty of parking. Visited here for lunch. Good value for money. Daily specials supplement the extensive menu. Good service and friendly staff. Prices c £8 to £10 for main courses. I tried ham egg and chips. The ham was good quality and plenty of it. My companion had homemade vegetable soup which came with a decent sized piece... More

I visited The Sorrel Horse for lunch with a friend inbetween Xmas and New Year. We had no trouble getting a table, and I had homemade Cottage Pie, and my friend had homemade Steak and Ale Pudding - both meals were stunning, good quality, generous portion sizes, and my friend asked for extra gravy which was provided with no problem....

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
