Bar Nov 16.jpg




Located a short walk from the town centre The Arbor House serves a selection of local, craft and world products.

The Arbor House opened in August 2016 and is located close to Christchurch Park, Ipswich Museum and The Wolsey Studio. Since then we have been serving a selection of Small Plates as well as modern versions of traditional pub classics led by our Head Chef Dan, while the bar serves a selection of Beers, Wines and Spirits from close to home and across the globe.

The Arbor House spreads across two floors, the ground floor is where the bar is located while 'The Aviary' upstairs provides additional seating with a comfortable lounge atmosphere and the option of private hire.

Within it's first year The Arbor House was nominated for two Casual Dining Awards, Best Designed Independent Pub or Bar and Independent Pub or Bar of the Year.

If you would like to make a reservation or discuss using The Aviary for a private function please feel free to contact us on 01473 219660 or email us at
