I'd originally planned to visit Ipswich the previous week, but luckily I delayed my trip to this week, as the Dove Street Inn only re-opened this Thursday.

I'm not sure of the reason for the extended closure, but the pub benefits from a large outdoor area, with many of the available tables undercover. This was just as well, as the rain started during my visit and I at least managed to stay dry for this one.

Blackboards display the available real ales and ciders. Greene King Abbot & Adnams Broadside appear to make regular appearances. In addition, there was Adnams Southwold Bitter, Oakham Inferno, Shorts Farm Blonde, Hopback Summer Lightning, Rudgate Ruby Mild & Dancing Duck Dark Drake. Ciders were Taunton Cider Company Dry & Medium, Celtic Marches Clementine Perry, Lilley's Chocolate Apple Cider & Seacider Cherry Bakewell.

Food was being served from an outdoor grill, with burgers and other barbecued food available.

With pleasant service and a nice, quiet drinking environment, this was my favourite pub in Ipswich and I was glad to finally get here after seeing it advertised for many years in the London Drinker magazine.

A truly excellent pub, with an assortment of drinking areas including some nice historic rooms, a glazed-over yard and a German-style beer garden. It is difficult to convey the rather splendid overall impression, so just go there and enjoy the great range of beers.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Dove Street Inn

Famous alehouse with a traditional-looking bar with a more modern covered yard area behind this and a patio beer garden at the back. With 12 real ales on handpump, and three more direct from the tap room, it was difficult to know what to choose, but I went for the St Peter's Mild (£3.30) in the end. Plenty of ciders available too, so it's not hard to see how this has become a destination pub and regular award winner. However, I didn't feel made particularly welcome here by the regulars or the barmaid, so perhaps I caught it on a bad day?
