The Food is Worth the Climb Upstairs

Not being local, we booked dinner here via the internet. We chose it based on favourable reviews of it and a menu that looked as if it would suit our dietary requirements. What we didn't notice anywhere was any mention of the number of stairs up to the dining area. Not great for anyone with... read more

Having previously been here for a pre theatre set menu meal, was keen to try it again without having to rush. Its well laid out on three small floors, with a bar area downstairs and two small rooms upstairs. No draught ales disappointingly. Relaxed atmosphere and although it was full the night we were in, it was easy to hear... More

Very lovely restaurant. Wanted to visit ages after very good reviews from friends and then it burnt down- finally got to go at the beginning of the year and wasn't disappointed at all. The place looks lovely. We had starters, mains and shared a desert (as were stuffed). The food was well presented with quality ingredients and was truly scrumptious.... More

Me and my husband were in Ipswich on a Friday night to see a comedy show, so were looking to have a nice meal beforehand. I have a Gourmet Card and wanted to take advantage of an offer, but had struggled to find an available restaurant. One had low staff so weren't serving in the evening, one fully booked, one... More

An early evening visit to The Townhouse with my neighbours and their young children provided a most relaxing and tasty experience. We were welcomed warmly and invited to a drink at the bar and given the menus to make our choices whilst relaxing. The staff were happy to provide excellent advice on dishes to help with my choices, and also... More

Couldn't fault the food or the service. Lovely menu, spoilt for choice so will have to find an excuse to go back. It was all cooked perfectly.

This was our first visit and we thoroughly recommend this restaurant. It was superb. My boyfriend and I booked a table for our anniversary. We had meant to try this place out for some time as we had walked past it regularly. We were very glad we did. The service was outstanding. Extremely friendly and attentive staff took care of...

Most places can do nice food however many mess up on desert. I had the lemon meringue and it was divine.
