Saved the day!

Stopped in for a quick dinner with a starving, nearly, 4 year old. The staff straightaway saw the seriousness of the situation and got his order, a kids size pasta, into the kitchen while we took our time deliberating over the delicious sounding menu. The chef and staff saved the day as the pasta... read more

After reading the reviews went with the family for Sunday lunch. Very disappointed, no high chair for the baby and no children's menu. Had to send my lamb back to be cooked as was very very rare. Not value for money at all even the cola was strange tasting, sorry but won't be going back !!

I don't actually remember the last time I went somewhere that had such consistently amazing food and beer, whilst still managing to remain, at heart, a pub. Very attentive and knowledgeable staff, and a great range of comfy seating make this place well worth an afternoon visit

I decided to take my staff out for lunch today as a treat for their hard work and was recommended to go to the Woolpack in Ipswich. When we arrived at the pub we were all very disappointed with the service we were given from when we walked in the door. When we walked in the pub, we saw all... More

I googled the woolpack before we set off on our forty minute walk to get there; I wanted to check what time they served food until. Although I didn't find the serving times on my phone, the web page stated they were child and dog friendly. We already knew this! We were once regulars and over the past year had... More

Just out if town in Ipswich the Woolpack is off the tourist track. However the beer is excellent and on our mid week evening visit it was very busy. We went for a meal and was not disappointed. Served in good time and very tasty. Highly recommended.

I met a few friends here after an afternoon in the park. The Woolpack is on the corner by Christchurch Park and is about a 10 minute walk from the town centre. They also do food but we did not eat. It is a good meeting place and has a good atmosphere.
