“Fantastic value - Great mid week set menu choice...”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

I enjoyed a meal here with friends last night and the mid week set menu is great value for money. The food is really well presented and good size portions...especially the desserts! The steak was cooked perfect and the whole meal was faultless. Lovely setting on the waterfront and great atmosphere inside the restaurant. Staff very friendly and accommodating if you wish to change certain elements of the menu choice. I have eaten here before and will definitely be back again - its great for a casual catch up with friends or a more formal meal - special occasion etc.
Three of us had the 3 course set menu plus drinks and the bill was just over £80. One of the best restaurants on the Ipswich Waterfront area.

The haddock fishcakes are gorgeous, followed by rib eye steak. Exceptional value set menu and the staff are friendly and helpful. Wonderful place to eat out.

“Try the Beef Wellington!!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Brilliant food and good views over the waterfront. I have been here with my wife for a romanti meal and have also taken our parents here a number of times. The food is consistantly of a high standard. The menu is small which enables them to perfect what they do serve to the customer. Try the beef wellington. it really is one of the best ive tasted anywhere.

A real gem of a place.
