Me and my partner were here for a cream tea and we were both very well impressed with it and the staff are very friendly and helpful as well and it was only £6.95 for the both of us.

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.
