    Was very much looking forward to trying The Rusty Nail but was unfortunately very disappointed. Booked a table but was told to sit outside. Food was not very nice and drinks were overpriced.

    We had a couple of drinks before realising I stupidly forgot to press the payment confirmation for food. So after a good while just thinking it was a normal wait we asked out waiter. The chef was amazing getting food to us in 5 mins after the mistake was rectified. Everything was yum. Most of it was GF which was an absolute bonus.

    We were looking for dinner before the show at the Ipswich Civic Centre and The Rusty Nail fitted the bill perfectly! Good food, good service and a short walk to the show.

    The place itself is amazing. However I did have to use the ladies. Disgusting - the water was brown and there seemed to be what I thought was pooh on the seat. I really had to go so I went to the male toilet and it had brown water in it but no where near a bad smell. The loos are that old that it had a chain that you pull to flush. Have not been to a toilet like that in years which was kind of cool. To me someone needs to get in there with a high pressure hose. For me I won't be coming back to the rusty nail only for fear of using the gross toilet. I know it's not the bar itself. I really liked it. Go if you don't plan on using the loo.

    Great atmosphere and service. We were very disappointed with the food. Hoping it was a bad night for the cafe as it is a great venue.

    Good selection of tapas. Many gfree options. Great cocktails. Rusty Nail was busy at 6pm on a Thursday. Drinks were slow but food was hot and speedy. Music wasnt live but pretty loud inside if you want to talk sit outside.
