For the sake of your tastebuds and money do not go here! The food was of a very poor quality as was the service provided. I don't mind spending $160 on a meal (I've spent $400 + before) as long as the food quality was not matching that of an average pub. The pricing for the quality should be a third of the price.

Tonight my wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with dinner at Fenton's as we do every year. We started with the bread which was fresh and warm, delicious. My wife had the eye fillet which she had well done. And I had the duck. Once again delicious. We had dessert, the strawberry cake for my wife and I had the ginger pudding. These were to die for. The atmosphere was fine but the furnishings are dated. The service was excellent. Everyone was very friendly and made our night . Particular congrats to Elise, our waitress, she was a credit to the restaurant. Beautiful smile and helpful and friendly manner. I think the experience was even better than last year and that was great.

It surprises me this place is still open.... However, sadly , there is little to none in the way of "fine dining" nearby.
We went for a family birthday. The meals are over priced. The drinks are over priced. The menu has barely changed in 10 years and it's a boring menu. I always struggle to find something I want.
Then when the meals eventually arrived, they were tiny. We all went back to a family members house for some snacks and drinks because we were all still hungry.
Over $120 got us an entree to share, 2 mains and i only had 1 gin....

Won't go back.

My partner and I dined at Fentons last night, and being new to the area it was a relief to find a fine dining restaurant in Ipswich! We started with oysters and the smoked salmon bread, he had steak and I had the chicken, and we finished with the shared chocolate indulgence dessert. Everything was superb and the service was excellent. My only suggestion would be to dim the lights in the front part of the restaurant a little further. But everything was lovely and exactly what you would expect with the price tag you're paying. We will definitely be back to Fentons.

We visited early on a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was quite busy. The service was exceptional and the food was very good. It is quite pricey but we walked away feeling that our money had been well spent.
