About our venue

The Thrasher re-opened February 2016 with the NEW exciting Hungry Horse look including a milkshake & ice-cream parlour and still family friendly dining. Situated on the corner of Ransome's Business Park, we are one of the most popular pubs in Suffolk. A colour scheme of deep burgundies, browns, mustards and dark blues blend together to give a great stylish look. Various seating options throughout include leather sofas to relax and enjoy a drink alone or with friends. There is some booth seating in the restaurant, some of which have TV screens. We are renowned for our great value food, drink and service with every customer having a great time. We are a proper destination food house with many customers travelling by car. Extensive menus have something to offer everyone with meals to suit different ages and tastes. The pub has a locals bar which attracts customers looking for a quality pint. Families are welcome and we have a superb beer garden which is quite large, an ideal place on warm days to enjoy a quiet pint! Our hard working staff will ensure you have a pleasant time and the Hungry Horse experience will be one you will want to try again and again.
