However, i have been back a few times in the last month and the difference is incredible. Firstly - Great service through out every time... More

It made a huge improvement with new owner and new chef! The food was boring and on average before the changeover. Now the restaurant is redecorated and is quite pleasant and welcoming. Interesting food on menu card but expensive. We chose food from the Today's Special, well presented home cooked food, also delicious.

Food is good but expensive for what is served. A new owner is in place and plans to improve the experience is on going. Service can be quite slow at times but am sure this will improve in time. The views of the sea front and the large ships going into Felixstowe Port are excellent.

Thank John K
