Whenever we visit Ipswich Haven Marina we dour very best to get a table at The Mariner's. The welcome is always warm and the menu enticing. I started with chorizo stuffed squid followed by a melt in the mouth bavette. Simply the most delicious beef...More

I celebrated my birthday here and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The service and food was good, though my brother's choice from the menu was finished so instead of lamb, he had duck, which was tender but not very tasty despite the alcoholic sauce! My only...More

Within easy walking distance of the town centre, Ipswich's most original restaurant, Mariners, is an antique Dutch customs gunboat, moored along Neptune Quay. You can relax in its wonderful atmosphere and its polished brass ambience. From a quick snack for lunch on the upper deck to a romantic dinner on the lower deck, it is the perfect place for an evening on the sea front.
