user reviews of the Pickerel, Ixworth

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Disappointed by the food. Menu is over priced for such basic pub fare. Starter of pate was not fresh ~ murky grey at the top and pink underneath. Pate doesn't keep well, even in the fridge so why pot it up days in advance if this is the result? £4.50 for small pot of cheap pate and a thin slice of toast? Hmmm. No 'salad garnish'. Returned to kitchen but replacement was no better.
Main course of Beef Madras (£8.75) was bog standard. These days food outlets need to have value added, and sadly the Pickerel fell short.
This criticism is intended to be constructive. It is no fun complaining!

Went in there last summer but did not stay for a drink. The customers in the public bar were rowdy, which is fine but there seemed something unpleasent about it. Confirmed when one of the punters belched loudly and looked challengingly around in our direction!

A shame as it is a lovely looking pub.

The attached restaurant has an excellent menu. Sadly, if they're busy, your meal could take a little too long to arrive!
Still, arrive early, and sample the ales!

Really nicely decorated old inn with fireplaces and stuffed animals and old adverts and various item collected over the years that probably mean something to old boys who run the place. The ale is Greene King but itís often a bit dodgy so I tend to stick the Guinness.

There is a restaurant and some guest rooms where visitor often stay. There is also a very handy function room with a stage, bar and projection screen that can be booked for events including live music.

A really good place to meet someone for a pint.

Lovely, dark, wooden beamed pub - Warm and welcoming. Lots of space and little nooks and crannies to nurse a pint in. Divided into two halfs with a restaurant on one side - serves Greene King Bitters and the usual range of lagers and spirits.
