This was our first visit to The Dog for Sunday lunch. On arrival we were pleased to find the restaurant warm and busy with a good atmosphere.  We ordered five roast beef lunches and were happy to wait as the restaurant was busy.  Unfortunately when the meals arrived we found the roast beef to be quite tough and fatty. It... More

Absolutely love this place! Me and my partner try to go as much as possible. Usually once a month.. (Been busy over Christmas). Hands down my favourite restaurant. Shame it's so far out as I'd probably go more if it was closer but I like the feeling of getting away from main Ipswich so I can't fault that either really.... More

Our booking on a Sunday was very late due to a last minute cancellation of a proposed visit to some friends. With the Christmas bookings we were very fortunate due to the considerate attitude of the management, that we were able to get a table mid-day. Both my wife and I had the roast beef which was done to perfection.... More

This was a second trip to The Dog after having a meal back in September which was amazing. We went Saturday 12 December, myself and my husband for the Christmas menu and all I can say is whoever the chef is, 10 out of 10. The food is faultless, the pub has a lovely atmosphere and the staff really friendly.... More

Visited yesterday (Saturday) lunch time. Incredible menu and great selection of bites , light and full sized meals. Service was great and friendly and had drinks and main food all within 90 mins. Pub is beautiful, cosy and a great atmosphere. Quality of food was great for the price , perfectly situated in pretty Grundisburgh. Would definitely visit again!

Thoroughly recommend this pub. Not only because it is my local but good food, great landlords and very accommodating in every way. Pizza oven in the summer is great for kids tea too!
