Booked a table early because we were going to the theatre. There were 6 of us. It took ages for them to take our order, and then a long while for food to arrived, and even longer for the mains to come. The food was nice, but we were getting a bit twitchy after a while and didn't enjoy it... More

A rainy evening - the staff were welcoming and helpful. The menu was well chosen and we ordered meat platter and tempura. The wine list was well priced and we thought the New Zealand Sauvignon was excellent and good value. The starters were great and the right amount for us. Our mains were chicken and fish respectively and not only... More

WE shared a single starter and then both had the chicken, with drinks and coffee the bill was less than £50 which we thought was very... More

We arrived here on a wet Saturday afternoon at 2.20. We did not realise that they stop serving lunch at 2.30. We felt a bit bad about this but it was good that they were happy to serve us. The restaurant itself is quite small but the tables and seats are placed well apart and provide a comfortable and relaxing... More

We came to the Townhouse for our 4 year wedding anniversary. It was midweek so very quiet but the front of house host was lovely. Very professional and attentive. Due to the restaurant being empty we were directed to a cosy little nook but also offered to pick our own table. Our waitress was very sweet took our drink and... More

What a lovely find through Trip Advisor. Not local & always struggle to know where to eat in Ipswich but not any more. Lovely surroundings, atmosphere, staff & food. Ideally situated for Ipswich Regent but not too far from the town centre if you are just out shopping. Will definitely recommend to friends & family.

We had booked to go here for my birthday and i loved every minute of it! The service was excellent, the atmosphere was very welcoming and roomy, and the food was delicious! We were a bit awkward with what we ordered for example changing chips with the fish fingers to new potatoes but the chef could happily do it which... More

The Townhouse is a really lovely restaurant, a small and intimate setting, cosy atmosphere, perfect for a romantic meal for two or a meal with friends or family. We visited with friends on a Saturday evening and had a delicious three course meal, the service was excellent, prices reasonable and all courses were beautifully presented, and tasted delicious. A great... More
