Arcade St was a breath of fresh air after a visit to a rival establishment - Not Cheap but the atmosphere and ambience was worth every penny - maybe some of the other publicans could do with a visit to see how to do it!...More

We were therefor a meeting and they not only allowed us use of the back bar, but also provided a complimentary buffet. The beer was superb, the staff really pleasant and it seemed like the place had a great atmosphere with lots of quirky rooms....More

Fantastic service (Hugo), great food, and a wonderful breeze whilst sat outside under the archway. The smoked salmon salad and the Caesar salad were generous portions.

This place has great gin and beer lists but it is just too overpriced, especially the imported Belgian beers. Other pubs in Ipswich do Belgian beers for much less. The music was awful - it was thumping, but worse than that, it was just terrible.More
