Review: Wonderful newspaper review of our pub food
The East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star restaurant reviewer Nicola Warren paid us a visit to review our food, and what a review it was! Highly complimentary across the board. She really enjoyed eating with us, and The Woolpack Team provided their usual top service. Here’s a quote from the closing paragraph: “I wouldn’t just say it’s as good as some restaurants in the town, I’d say the food here was even better than many of them.” Read the review here.
News: Pub Of The Year Finalist

Review: One of the best pub breakfasts
The highly respected Fry Up Inspector called a while back, and sampled our Full English breakfast. He was very impressed! “Everything looked delicious when it arrived and the quality of the ingredients shone through” – “The sausage, bacon and black pudding used on this breakfast were all really delicious and very good quality, their choice of supplier was an excellent decision” – “saute potatoes were amazing, the tomato tasted great and the mushrooms were spot on” – “If you’re looking for a decent breakfast in Ipswich then a visit to The Woolpack is most definitely needed”. Well, that is praise indeed, though he did think his fried egg might have been a little softer, and the bill a little lower. We will try harder, Fry Up Inspector, and look forward to seeing you again. Read the review here.
Link: The Woolpack one of UK’s most haunted pubs!
Well, blow me down, our pub is one of the UK’s most haunted. Here’s the proof, methinks: “Once an old smuggler’s haunt, this Georgian public house is well known to be one of the most haunted pubs in the UK, if not the world. This is down to the number of ghosts that have been reported there. One of the more well known is that of Admiral Edward Vernon who died in 1757 after a controversial career which saw him move from a Naval Captain to politician. Other reported spirits include a persecuted monk, a drowned sailor and a disgruntled bar owner named George.” You can read the full report here.
