Formerly a cluster of 18th-century farm cottages, The Beagle serves traditional British fare in a historic setting which borders the rural fringes of Sproughton. A crackling log fire, al fresco dining area and paddocked gardens add to The Beagle’s country charm, together with a mishmash of squashy furniture.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Beagle menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Beagle ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

An 11-minute drive from Christchurch Mansion & Wolsey Art Gallery, The Beagle in Ipswich is just an 8-minute drive from the town centre.

    Very good offer, lovely surroundings. I mpressed with portion sizes. Couldn't fault it. Staff very attentive. Haven't been there for a while, but will go back definitely

    I was immediately drawn to the Lamb dish (which included a shepherd's pie ) when viewing the menu, but was disappointed to learn that there was none, and it hadn't been available due to supply problems. I settled for the fish and chips, which was filling and cooked well.
    Our waitress was very pleasant, and the atmosphere was warm and "Christmasy".

    A very pleasant evening, respectful and friendly service.
    Good choice of menu but indication of dietary suitability would have been better printed on the menu and items broken down eg I booked roast turkey but the diet guide said not gluten free, but with request to kitchen it was easily adjusted to exclude Yorkshire puddings. The dessert I chose was not available and it was too much trouble to look back through the guide to choose an alternative.
    Very nice setting, vintage warmth lovely, chairs comfortable could be cleaned. Not sure where to hang coats.

  • (((** 1 November 2016 by Joe Godbold from Ipswich

    Food was good, delicious and hot, the waiting was average to good and the service was good, the table we had was a bit wobbly and I personally didn't like the mirrors on the wall at my position as it unwantedly gave me views of other diners eating, but all in all I would go again and recommend.
