Restaurant description

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.

    Booked for 9 but an extra person turned up. But it was no trouble the staff just laid another place and got on with it. Everyone had a great time and the food was great. A good atmosphere for a birthday party.

    The restaurant phoned us prior to the booking time and advised us that they had a technical issue with some equipment and that they only had a limited menu choice. Nice touch I thought. We went along anyway, only to be told on arrival that all equipment was working well and the full menu was available. Great waitress skills shown by Kris and all had a good and enjoyable meal except for myself as I found my "Slow-cooked ham hock" had not really seen an oven much at all.... I sent it back and they did something to it, but by that time I was beyond any interest in it. To their credit they knocked the cost of this main off the final bill. Great location, excellent staff - just let down by my poor main course......

    Attentive and friendly staff. Main meal was excellent, but had a long wait after ordering sweet. Easy to book table on line too

    Awful. Just awful. Everything seems to be an inconvenience to the staff, even simple requests like “where is my food, my order is incorrect, there are things missing from my plate” seems to set off an attitude just short of a visible eye roll. I felt like I was a huge inconvenience to them just by being a paying guest. The only person there who was nice was the waitress from Newcastle who was lovely and attentive. The food took so long for four people that we lost the will to order dessert and left unhappy - we waited so long and it really wasn’t worth the wait at all. I’ve has the same experience twice at this place in a month so I will not be going back nor will my family or friends who accompanied me on each visit.

    We waited an hour for our starters to arrive ....................need I say more. Perhaps more waiting staff would bring an improvement.
