Lovely lunch out

Two of us ate here last week and were extremely satisfied with the service, the menu selection and the quality of food. I highly recommend it and look forward to the next visit.

We went here last night (3 friends). We booked at 6.15 as we was not sure how long we would need to allow enough time to eat and see a show at 8pm at the local Regent theatre. I did explain to the girl that we were seeing a show. Upon arrival we were greeted please and waited for a... More

The atmosphere is very pleasant here and better than another establishment that I rated highly, there's also a good choice of beers. The food is excellent and the service efficient and service. The prices are good value but more than most in the area although worth every penny. So, I like the food, the drink, the service and the venue... More

Went here 2 years ago, & have finally come round to doing a review! We went here after finding out we was expecting our daughter. It was quiet, great food, happy staff & a lovely atmosphere. The only one thing i could say bad, its a small bit over priced.

Went for my mum's birthday as it's always reliable and this was no disappointment. The staff were lovely as always and the good was just amazing! The beef Wellington was just melt in the mouth tender and the whole dish was very tasty. I'd recommend it to anyone! The raspberry lemonade bars were to die for! So light and tasty,... More

We were due to go to the Regent at Ipswich and decided to grab a meal beforehand, so picked the Townhouse. It was a good choice! The food was excellent, the service very attentive and because they knew that we were due at the theatre, the meal came up quickly. 2 courses for £16, well prepared and fresh ingredients was...

I visited today (29-Jun-15) and it was perfect throughout, smooth and friendly service, great food and generous portions. It might not hit Michelin Star levels, but it's pretty damn close. Tastecard 2for1 meant the bill for two with wine was £43. Perfect for an excellent midweek dinner and plenty of space suggests the weekend would be just as good.

I came a couple of years ago for a Christmas meal and I can't say I was too impressed. The food was really slow and they messed up our bill by adding 2 bottles of wine to the table. Luckily a few of us hadn't been drinking and we noticed.
