13:00 5 others in. Very efficient barmaid. The manager was in the yard setting up a beer festival and he kindly gave us a quick tour of the Isaac's building. The choice of the brewery's beers was limited as they had supplied the CAMRA beer festival happening over the weekend.

Summary of Beer Scores


The pub is found in Ipswich, Suffolk, IP4 1LB.

Very interesting. The building in Fore Street is a former Lloyds bank that has been taken over by the adjacent Isaac's. Isaac's being a converted maltings housing three bars and a function suite. The lower floor of the building houses the brewery whilst the upper floor is a bar. The bar has been fitted out with seemingly no expense spared. Built in bench seating, Briarbank brewery mirrors and a bar incorporating barrels. The walls are decorated with photographs of old Ipswich pubs.

We have visited this pub once, seen 4 different beers and tried 1 of them.
