The Royal Oak opened in December 2021 and has gone from strength to strength.

It’s home to our community café, serving delicious and healthy food at affordable prices. Enjoy our tasty breakfast and lunch menu with fresh ingredients or just enjoy a slice of cake and a drink. We have vegan options available, all meals are available as a kids portion and we are dog friendly!

While you are with us,  pick up a bargain in the Royal Oak Pre-Loved Emporium, full of top-quality homeware.

The Royal Oak is also home to some of our very popular hubs, where people can meet new people in a safe and supportive space. You can check out our hubs timetable here

Like Emmaus Suffolk’s other social enterprises in Ipswich , the Royal Oak community café and charity shop also provides volunteering opportunities for people experiencing isolation, loneliness and long-term unemployment. This model has enabled many Emmaus Suffolk volunteers to move on to employment, training or education.
