What CAMRA say about this pub

One of a series of huge suburban pubs built in the 1930s by the Ipswich brewery Tolly Cobbold and known as "Tolly Follies". Over the years, the former multi-roomed interior has been much changed and opened-out but you can still spot some original features - the oval skylight over the bar, oak panelling in what was the lounge and the collonnade which formerly gave on to the patio. Very good value food including a two meals for £10 menu available all day every day. Quiz on Tuesdays and folk club on Fridays. Has a reputation for serving interesting beers though the last visit found the offerings all to be mainstream.
