Had the veggie breakfast here - quality of individual ingredients was first class and presented cleanly on the plate. Best veggie version of a full English breakfast I've had in Ipswich

Great Breakfast and equally good coffee, only slight niggles i have is the small plates are not ideal for a full breakfast and totally spoil any presentation, also toast was rather underdone. Saying that service as good as always and quality cannot be knocked

We've been here and eaten dozens of times over the past couple of years and it's always been excellent. Great food, beers and service. There's a good standard menu with a varied and changing set of specials.

If you ever come to Ipswich and are looking for a pub with a great atmosphere, good food, welcoming bar staff and a fine selection or drinks, with knowledgeable staff, then look no further than the Woolpack.

We arrived about 7.30pm and managed to find a suitable couple of tables. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We were able to have a drink and not be pressured whilst we made our choices. The Walt for the food was reasonable and the...More
