As usual very warm welcome by friendly staff. Really pleasant atmosphere in restaurant . Service was excellent and majority of our party were extremely pleased with their food. Unfortunately two of us ordered steak which did not come up to expectations. Meat was mostly gristle.we did complain and our waitress informed chef. Ten pounds was deducted from Bill but overall two of us were left very disappointed and dubious about returning

Once again, this restaurant on Ipswich Marina did not disappoint.
I ate here on a weekday evening with four friends. It was packed full and I was surprised as it was a Tuesday and didn’t expect it. Several people called in hoping to get a table without a booking and were turned away.
I am pleased to say that they have at last added some new items to the menu. As a frequent diner here, it is a shame they do not change the menu more often.
I am Coeliac and the restaurant were advised beforehand. I was pleasantly surprised to be given a menu which the chef had altered to show what I could eat or what could be adapted. This was extremely helpful and meant I didn’t have to keep asking the staff what I could eat.
The staff were on the ball despite being busy which was good.
We ate from the set menu which is £14.50 for 2 courses.
I ordered mussels to start and was very pleased to be given what appeared to be a homemade gluten free bread roll, nicely warmed. I was very happy! It tasted delicious.
For my main course I had pan fried seabass with lobster sauce and parsnip puree. The portion was huge and cooked perfectly. It was served on crushed new potatoes.
A lovely dining experience once again and I am very pleased that they are able to offer some good options for Coeliacs!
