Lovely place, just fix the fan!!

I poped in on the off chance of a table for my boyfriend and I for lunch. We were seated as it wasn't busy, the waitress was very professional, we both had the burgers which were good but not amazing, but they were reasonably priced. It was lovely except for where we sat, the fans building outside... read more

Always enjoyed eating at the Townhouse prior to the fire and pleased to say they are back with great food just as before. The dishes were beautifully presented and delicious. I had crispy Sea Bass with Patatas Bravas and my husband had the Chicken and Leek Pie from the set menu. My only suggestion for improvement would be a few... More

Myself and my partner enjoyed eating at The Townhouse prior to the fire which left it closed for several months. Therefore we were eager to return to sample the delights and what a better opportunity than Valentines. My partner booked a table for 7.30pm, however due to an oversight we didn't get sat at our table until nearly 8.30pm. The... More

This was one of our favourite restaurants to spend many occasions in pre-fire & closure! Glad it reopened... Our first visit back was for a romantic valentines night meal- Food was top-notch very very tasty & very well presented only downfall was lacking romance & to many tables far to close together-no intimacy!

We were regular diners before The Townhouse sadly shut its doors for a while, pleased to see they are back and still have the same lovely vibe as before. Wine and food cannot be faulted, service is friendly and we even had our coats warmed on a radiator before we left. Can't wait to go again!

We choose The Townhouse as the venue for a birthday celebration for my brother, it didn't disappoint at all. We had to bring our 6 week old and despite them being super busy, this was not an issue at all, and we're very accommodating. Overall a lovely atmosphere, quality service and food to was tasty... Will certainly be visiting again... More

A place not to be missed in Ipswich, one of my favourite restaurants, great for just a relaxed drink or a great dinner. They do Tastecard as well, which is a bonus.
