It was a sweltering hot afternoon when Gavin and I decided a jaunt on the train to Ipswich was in order.

Bubba Q 

I can only say good things about Bubba Q, I’m annoyed at myself for not taking photos of their beef brisket and pulled pork that I so happily got stuck into on my first visit. I had bought a voucher on old faithful itison.com, which I rely on to introduce me to all manner of new weird and wonderful experiences.
