My final stop in Ipswich before heading back to the railway station was this pub in the dock area.

I'd overheard another couple trying to book a table for drinks here from the Dove Street Inn. They'd been told that it was fairly quiet.

You get to the outdoor area by walking through the L-shaped bar. Unfortunately, whilst there were available tables, none were undercover and the rain was becoming more persistent. I wasn't the only one sat in the rain with a hat on!

The two ales on were Mr Bees Suntan & Adnams Ghost Ship. Two ciders on handpull were Orwell "Old English" & Dorset Nectar Medium. The Orwell cider clip was hand written and I suspect this was really Old Oaky, as the ABV (7%) matched. This was certainly the most adventurous cider I had found in Ipswich and despite the rain watering it down, was very enjoyable.

The rain spoilt my enjoyment of this pub. But I'd certainly give the pub the benefit of the doubt and say that it was one of the best 3 I visited on the day. Being within around 10 or so minutes from the station, it may well be on my itinerary the next time I visit the town.

large open plan pub next to river and modern developments. Standard pub furniture suits the building. Beer is average
