Excellent breakfast, tea too. Portions are very good and staff pleasant and efficient, and they seem to have a genuine pride in their food.

We had stayed overnight in Ipswich overnight and were heading back west the next monring. Having an early start on a Sunday morning, we were looking for somewhere for a good honest English Breakfast, and were finding the only options early on a Sunday were going to be formulatic offerings by national chains or an overpriced breakfast at our hotel....

We went there for lunch. The staff were very down to Earth, chatty and helpful (we had a 1year old with us). We then finished. Out lunch with feeding the ducks.
