We popped into this pub was miserable wet Saturday afternoon and were delighted with what we found. We sat in the lounge where there was a fire and a whole stack of board games which we tried our hand at while drinking good wine and beer (at reasonable prices!) We then decided to stay for dinner and everything was delicious,... More

Went for Sunday Lunch last week and as usual the food was delicious, lamb was the choice of three of us and the beef was also chosen by the forth member of our party. The vegetables were just right not too crunchy and not too soft, roast potatoes nice and crisp and the Yorkshire pudding was enormous, crisp and tasty.... More

If you have ever wondered about the meaning of "well kept beer"... have a pint in The Woolpack. At the same time enjoy the unimprovable food, delightful staff and homely atmosphere. Come to think of it... no, stay away, let me keep it to myself.

We're regular visitors to Ipswich from our home in Canada, since we have family there. We had tried the Woolpack previously without being overly impressed. At the recommendation of a friendly cabbie, who noted that the management has changed since our last visit, we decided to give it another go. We were very glad that we did - things have... More

If you plan a day out in Christchurch Park, I heartily recommend this place on the way through - the food here is fantastic. There's outdoor seating available if you fancy it.

We stopped off at the Woolpack for a cold drink and a snack having been out for a long Sunday afternoon walk. We sat outside in the sun to rest our aching feet and treated ourselves to a home made scotch egg and a sausage roll. Both were whopper-sized, really tasty and very meaty, the scotch egg with the slightly... More

4 of us ate early evening, drinks were fine as you would expect in a pub but service was ok and food was poor. I had the "Woolpack burger" which was good but not exceptional, the other 3 had - chickpea burger, which was described as dry and fairly tasteless, the chicken green Thai curry, which was ok except for...
