“Back again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Just had a lovely weeks holiday in Felixstowe so had to come back here as really enjoyed our visit last itme we were here.We had 3 visits this time, once just for a drink or two and twice to eat from their fab 2 meals for £10 menu.The lady from behind the bar recconised us from last time which was nice.She is a really nice lady, very friendly and helpful with an infectious laugh.Found out this time she is called Tina.The first meal myself and my partner had was steak pie, chips and peas with a gravy boat each and these were two for £10.It was very filing and lovely.My daughter had a jacket potato and this was very reasonably priced and my son had a chicken baquette which again was reasonably priced and looked fab.We all really enjoyed it so much we went back a few days later and took our friends that we had met up with.Again we enjoyed a lovely meal, this time i had chicken and ribs combo.The kids all enjoyed playing pool.We spent a really nice time here and would definately return.They also have a nice selection of drinks f which i think are reasonably priced.Thanks to all concerned and "Hi" to Tina :-)

“Nice welcome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Having walked past this pub numerous times over the last 4 years on the way to other places to eat i was pleasantly surprised when we finally decided to pop in to see what it was like.
We were warmly welcomed by the barstaff, sorry if one of you was the landlady will find out next time we are in Felixstowe.
There is a large bar area, children welcome during the day. There is a wide rage of beers nice to see Adnams on tap.
Food was very good and freshly made, they do a 2 for £10 lunch time menu which is good value.
So overall this is'nt a bad place to spend a couple of hours to have a meal and a couple of pints.

“Lovely meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Went here for the first time on a recent trip to Felixstowe.Popped in for a drink after a walk and found it to be very welcoming and child friendly.Had a nice quiet drink while the kids played pool.Liked it so much we decided to go back the next day for lunch.They have just introduced their two for £10 menu so we thought we would try that.It was fab!!My partner had a burger, chips and salad which looked lovely and i had chicken breast, ribs, chips and salad which i thought was fantastic value.The kids were extremely happy with theirs too, 1 had burger and the other a blt baguette and these were very reasonably priced too.
The staff were very friendly and we got a warm welcome when we went back the second day.
There is an area outside which i would imagine would be nice to sit out there on a warm sunny day.
Would definately return when in Felixstowe again.
