Ben Jessop and Tom Baker have given up their Sunday's to sample roasts in Ipswich, Felixstowe and beyond, trying to find their favourite.

Since starting to review roast dinners at pubs and restaurants four months ago, Mr Jessop and Mr Baker have gained a large following on Instagram, so much so waiting staff often recognise them from their reviews.

Mr Jessop, who lives in Trimley St Mary and works full time in maritime transport, said: "It started off as a joke, we decided to try every different place selling roasts.

"Now pubs and restaurants are asking us to go and try theirs."
