This is what you would expect food wise, cheap pub food thats familiar with the microwave. I had a panini which was well filled and quite tasty. The staff were friendly, happy and were busy checking back on customers to see if the food was ok. A sign of some good training practices there...

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.

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

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
