The Greyhound has been a great pub for over 20 years now, serving great Adnams beers and guest ales together with good pub food. Good atmosphere with friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Recommended to visit by friends at the local theatre and little wonder that the Greyhound is the preferred pub for everyone working in theatre in Ipswich - I understand that cast and crew of both the New Wolsey and Eastern Angles can often be found here after a performance. Great, friendly staff provide a superb range of beers and delicious... More

Fantastic pub with friendly staff, great food and good selection of beers. Of particular note is the Brunch offered on a Sunday morning - it was enormous but all locally sourced by the look of things. Better than other restaurants round here that are charging twice as much! Get's quite busy on a Friday and Saturday night so worth booking... More

We stayed locally overnight at the wonderful Sidegate Guest House and needed to eat in the evening. We always take along the Good Beer Guide and so decided to go to The Greyhound and so glad we did. It's obviously a very popular 'local' and we were warmly greeted on arrival. We chose a ham salad and also meatballs with... More

Was taken in to the pub be a local while visiting Ipswich. Nice pub with a good atmosphere and after a few beers decided to dine in rather than else where. There is a board with lots of specials on and a short menu that covered all tastes. I decided to have a burger, salad and fries. A simple choice... More

It's been a few years since my last visit to the Greyhound but based on this visit I will be returning in the near future. Great food & beer in a perfect pub atmosphere. Busy but very welcoming.

I met with some old friends to catch up and this was a perfect place for this. They have great ales on-tap and the food is pure quality. We had some humungous battered cods and a delicious beef burger, all at a very fair price. The atmosphere is good and the staff are nice, there is an abundance of outdoor... More

I have been to the Greyhound twice and have been really impressed both times :) The first time was with a group of 8 of us... it was a quiet night and we managed to get a big table straight away. The staff were friendly and the food was delicious. I had a slice of rum and chocolate torte- soooo... More

Have visited the greyhound several times not for dinners and lunches both midweek and weekend. The service is always friendly, the food is fab and the portions are huge. Try the steak pie!

Disappointed with quality of food served. My wife's salmon fish cakes contained a piece of cling film. As we left we drew it to the attention of a member of staff who seemed unconcerned and said "thanks for letting us know". Good place to go if you like mushy peas as they seem to come with most dishes. E.G. Steak... More
