“In this day and age, it’s hard to find a good pub. The Shoulder Of Mutton was recommended to me by a friend, and now I know why – the quality of service I received was outstanding. Keep up the good work!”

Stayed in Ipswich at the weekend. Popped into the Shoulder of Mutton for a couple of drinks in the afternoon. Good service coupled with reasonably priced drinks.
Went back Saturday evening and there was a live band - they were fantastic and we had a great evening.
Can't comment on the food as we didn't eat there, but what we saw others having looked very inviting.
Would definitely visit again if I was in the area.

We visited the Shoulder for Sunday Lunch, the Pub was warm, good atmosphere, great log fire, very cosy. Staff happy, friendly, efficient. Service was good, food fantastic, piping hot, great Yorkshire Pudding, beef cooked to perfection, as were the rostis. Price good, definitely go again, wouldn't hesitate to recommend this little Hidden Gem.
