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.

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

    The food was cold and poorly presented. Turkey very dry and cabbage old and had seen better days. Waiting staff however were helpful and willing to try and rectify this for us! Just a shame the kitchen staff didn’t pay more care and attention.

    Good food as always good service as always

    Only critiscism is there didn't seem to be sufficient staff as it took a while to be served, all through the process. Needed to share a meal with my Mother, at 89 she has little appetitie and no matter how small a portion it fills her up just looking at it, there was no fuss made and a second plate brought, made my Mother feel at ease.

    Have always liked the beagle so had the table booked as a 60th birthday treat as always food and service was excellent and Heather the waitress was very attentive but not over the top and just enough time between courses will definitely be back well done and keep doing what you already do very well

  • ((((( 7 June 2017 by Geoff Paisley from Ipswich

    The Beagle is lovely. We have dined here on several occasions and our latest visit, Friday 2nd June, was very relaxing. The bar area is traditional and comfortable and the dining areas are quite individual with a wonderful ambience. The food is very good and anybody selecting a hot drink and a mini pudding for dessert will be very pleased with the size of the "mini" pudding!
