Jay and I as you will probably see from our reviews spend quite a bit of time visiting pubs. So, here we are in Ipswich at the Dove Street Inn. Nothing special from the outside but on the inside is a wonderfully interesting bar room with loads of wood and pub memorabilia.There are lots of boards with information on the available beers. As for the beers/ales Jay doesn't really drink alcohol apart from the very occasional glass of cider or wine. I on the other hand like to try real ales, and different lagers. So when we visit the pubs part of it is to take in the history and the ambience not necessarily the food and drink. For those of you who have read our other reports you may already know that Jay's a vegetarian so the menu is always of interest in allowing us to pass information on to other vegetarians.The food menu is simple with stews, beef and vegetarian curries, meat and vegetarian shepherds pies, pasties and sausage rolls all presented with no frills and no fuss. This is a great place to meet, eat and drink, a match for anywhere in the country. With a wide range of 12 real ales including there own brews, an excellent selection of draft lagers including some favourites from Belgium such as Kriek and Leffe. I'm always up for trying something different and one that I tried was "Elgoods Coolship" a Lambic style beer which is a sour beer brewed with wild yeast. Very different, it has a very strong flavour which I quite enjoyed and as you would imagine it was "sour". Sour beer is slowly taking off slowly in the Uk and I suspect will be come more popular as a guest ale. This is a pub not to be missed if you're visiting Ipswich, for more information and an insight into the décor you should visit the pub website www.dovestreetinn.co.uk.
