Had a meal and drink at the Golden Lion with my daughter prior to watching Mike and the Mechanics at the Corn Exchange. It was very busy but we found a table nice to see some real ale selections for about £2.50 pint. My daughter had a Mexican burger and I had the 14 oz rump steak, this included a... More

I am actually still in the golden lion as I write, so I hopefully won't miss anything! Firstly, we've been to several Wetherspoons, so we know to expect cheap and cheerful pub food, but today we feel let down. It started when I ordered, a large breakfast for my partner and a breakfast bloomer sandwich for me. I requested to... More

This is one of three weatherspoons pubs in ipswich, for us the best food without a shadow of doubt out of the three pubs, delivered quickly , hot( unlike cricketers) clean , tables wiped before we got our seats, and welcomed by staff, will be going again soon.

We went there on their Steak Club night and had the Aberdeen Angus 14oz steak which was extremely good value for money. They cooked it perfectly and you would have paid at least twice as much probably anywhere else. Also, doubled up the free drink, gin, for only an extra pound. Sat upstairs which we found very pleasant.

Visting Ipswich city for the first time. Popped into Wetherspoons for lunch. Curry was on the menu, would have been rude to say no! It was delicious and very well prices. Pub is very old and quirky, sat upstairs. Received very good service. Went back for a couple in the evening, and again good service, drinks prices reasonable. Would definitely... More

Had been shopping for hours on a Sunday and tought we should stop for a drink and maybe something to eat. The menu lookedok but decided to go for the Baked Potato with three bean chilli. It took a little while to reach the table and the inside was still very cold! They took it back and offered another one... More

We were visiting Ipswich for the weekend. It was Saturday afternoon and the shops were closing and a football match was just about to finish at the nearby ground. We were on the lookout for food and knew that there was a Wetherspoons somewhere close by. From the outside it's small. We almost missed it. The give away was the... More

My husband and I often visit the Golden Lion if we are in town on a Saturday to have breakfast, yesterday we visited and upon my husbands recommendation, (as last he had, had this and it was very nice) I ordered the Eggs Benedict. The pub was quite busy as it tends to be Saturday mornings, the breakfast trade is... More

Should point out I'm reviewing this as a restaurant not a hotel! (It is slap bang in Ipswich town center so wouldn't wish to try and sleep anywhere like that as its obv going to be alive with night life!) The place looks lovely from the outside, an old little pub tucked down a corner, but once you get in... More

I have titled this eating not sleeping as I have just read the reviews, but most of the reviews involve staying the night, we however only went there for Sunday lunch. The guys behind the bar were very friendly, we ordered our Sunday roast and received our free drink, we were told it would be about 20 minutes but actually... More
