Really nice food shame about the parking fine .. didn’t realise that you had to sign in your car so now have a £60 fine ... maybe staff could notify customers when taking your food order... that’s not to much to ask is it

Thank you for the review. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your meal, however I am sorry to hear that you received a parking fine. There are notices within our car park that clearly state the rules for using this service and we also have signage on the main entrance door and dotted around the venue. Apologies that you did not see this. On future visits you must enter your vehicle registration on the iPads provided, you will then receive free parking. Once again I apologise for this misunderstanding and hope you will visit us again.

I went here Sunday afternoon for my nieces baby shower. The staff had for a great job with the table and her friends had added to this. It was a lovely setting, sat in a long table but the window. We had sausage rolls to start and then afternoon tea of sandwiches, scones, jam and cream and cakes shared between two with ample tea and coffee.
Staff were friendly and helpful..
in all a great experience!

Thank you so much for providing this lovely review and photographs of your event. We really enjoy looking back at them. Afternoon tea is the perfect way to celebrate a Baby Shower and I'm glad to hear it didn't disappoint. I will pass on your positive feedback regarding the service to our team. They work so hard to ensure our customers enjoy their experience (especially on such a special celebration) so once again thank you for taking the time to write a review. We hope we see you again!

Been back to Aurora this evening, food was really good and the service too. Not the cheapest place in town, but you get what you pay for!

our last visit which was a long time ago was a disaster, HOWEVER, this was the opposite and I have to thank and recommended the staff and great night we received on this visit.........well done, we have the best time and will be back, great way to start the new year. The team are a credit to the owners.
Some of our answers to the questions are a bit odd because we are not sure what is 'normal' and what was a one off, ref music etc

Amazing venue, pre dinner drinks in a beautifully decorated location on the Ipswich waterfront.
We all chose cocktails and there is an extensive choice and the servers are really adept and quick so when its busy, delays are minimal.
There's a good choice of seating. Will definitely visit again and perhaps try the food
