    We had to wait over 45 minutes for the food, which did seem a little long considering other people around us had 2 dishes before we had ours. However the waiter was kind enough to offer us a free glass of wine each for the delay. When the food came, it really was fantastic. I had the Roast Partridge, and my Girlfriend had the special which was the Cod. The only thing I will say was that I'd wish my portion was a little big bigger, partly because I didn't quite feel as full up as I'd liked, but mainly as it was so nice I wanted more! We then shared the Chocolate Fondant, which was also extremely tasty. It is probably the best meal we've had in Ipswich for the last year or so, mainly because of the food, but the restaurant itself is great- nicely lit, great furniture and helpful staff.

    Beautiful food. Unfortunately service was terrible and really let you down. We sat in the bar to start with and were ignored for first half hour. Had to ask twice for drinks then wrong order arrived. then seated next to the noisiest large party in the restaurant when there were plenty of quieter tables available and we asked to move which was arranged without fuss. Staff showed little passion for the food or for being of service. It was difficult to get someone's attention. Putting 10% service charge on the bill as an automatic step felt presumptuous. We consider this optional and something to reflect the quality of the service experience. What a shame. Incredible venue, beautiful food but front of house needs a good sort out.

    We spent an enjoyable evening in the restaurant on Monday evening celebrating my sons birthday. The starters and puddings we chose were excellent. My sons chose steak and their partners chose partridge and lamb. My wife and I chose lemon sole which sadly was very disappointing. We each had one small fillet measuring 75mm x 50mm. The cucumber, radish and oyster sauce was excellent. Did you run out of fish? No mention was made by your staff. I welcome your comments as this took the edge off our evening.

    The food was delicious, especially the starters. The service is a bit unpredictable here which is a shame. Finally, the toilets were a bit of a mess, clearly not tidied/cleaned for a good few hours. But must say again great food!

    We had a very enjoyable afternoon the service was excellent from all the staff nothing was too much for them and was greatly appreciated, the variety of food was good with both savoury and sweet, one thing we found was the wine and cold drinks ordered were extremely expensive compared to other places, so thought a bottle of wine should have been offered rather than individual glasses perhaps, otherall very good.
