Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An absolutely fantastic find. We just wandered through Woodbridge and found this gem of a restaurant. Amazing food, perfectly prepared by a chef with over 40 years of experience and served by an equally wonderful hostess. If you get the chance, please go here. Just...do it.More

Absolutely incredible food here! Mind-blowingly good! Found it on the off chance while taking a wander around Woodbridge, and was delighted with the 3 course lunch. Really lovely and friendly staff, an absolute gem! Thoroughly recommended!!

Our second visit to this super restaurant, this time with friends from Norwich. Again excellent food, efficient and friendly service. The main courses were beautifully cooked with excellent sauces while the desserts were truly wonderful. The restaurant wasn't busy for a Saturday lunchtime, Woodbridge visitors...and residents clearly don't always know a good thing when they see it.More

This place is just superb. Soft lighting and French bistro feel to it. Just a lady serving and a gentleman in the kitchen, and few tables. Although we went with friends, definitely perfect for a romantic meal too. The food was exquisite; delicious and good...portion sizes and value for money. I hope you get there before fame changes it too much!More

My wife had the salmon en Croute, and was divine…..usual cheeseboard to follow…..ATE OT ALL, from start to finish!!!!! Oh……did I mention the copious amounts of alcohol?????

My husband and I returned to this quite exceptional restaurant in the heart of Woodbridge on Friday, and how we’ve missed this quality of food!!!!! I had the fish cake, my husband, the Seafood Chowder…..I’ve seen smaller main courses!!!!! Full of flavour, and so much...fish in the chowder!!!! Fillet steak followed, cooked perfectly, as usual!!!!!! Once again, I was too full to have a dessert, but the cheeseboard was truly incredible, as the empty plate suggested. I really can’t imagine anything else in the area I would rather be than here!!!! Truly wonderfulMore

We went for a lunch over Easter with my Parents and Husband. The food was spectacular and the restaurant had a lovely relaxed atmosphere with friendly prompt service. Food wise we had scallops and duck to start, with lamb, steak and monkfish for mains, with...Panna Cotta and chocolate dome for dessert. All dishes were fantastic, delicious and well presented. Would highly recommend and can’t wait to come back!More

I like to revisit reviews about every 15 months or so to see whether my original review is adequate or biased. Having visited this wonderful restaurant again I would point you towards my original review - the overall sentiment has not changed! https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g186387-d24169508-r864393223-Bistro_47a-Woodbridge_Suffolk_East_Anglia_England.html Still as...good - food different this visit - but just as fantastic Service impeccable and as an added bonus - we are always made to feel so welcome and valued as customers.

The lunchtime menu is spectacularly good value. If you are not from Woodbridge it is well worth making the trip there just to visit Bistro 47a, if you are from Woodbridge, you are lucky to have this restaurant on your door step. The food is...always excellent, and the service is warm and friendly. I will keep coming back.More

At last, a great restaurant in the Woodbridge area with a wide menu, excellent food and service. The food was delicious, the sauces very well flavoured. The set menu in particular represented very good value.

Amazing food, atmosphere and service. This is just what Woodbridge needs. Our meal was 5 star from the start, the scallops were devine, the fish cakes were adorable and the turine was yummy. Our main courses of salmon, sea bass, liver and beef just sealed...the deal. We are hooked and will definitely return when in Woodbridge. Thank you so much for a fantastic evening from another Moulsham alumini 😘More
