Like many other Ipswich residents I remember the Arboretum of the 1980s. When I worked in Ipswich it was our lunchtime local complete with dartboard and jukebox. Since then it has had a number of changes of ownership/management and we were pleased to find it reopened as the Arbor House.
We visited at lunchtime with friends a few weeks ago and this evening went back for an unplanned early evening visit. We were not disappointed. My braised chicken in red wine with mash was absolutely delicious and my partner who is veggie also enjoyed his chestnut and lentil pie. Although we were quite full after these main courses we both managed to squeeze in the definitely homemade apple and cinnamon pie for desert- one with ice cream and the other with 'proper' custard.
Great value for money friendly staff and lovely food. Will definitely be visiting again
