Ipswich is home to some great restaurants. Ipswich is a vibrant waterfront town in East Anglia with a port that has been in operation since Saxon times. Visitors can enjoy food, drink and live music across town, as well as boat rides along the River Orwell. The Old Custom House is filled with history and surrounded by quality entertainment venues and the waterfront itself is perfect for a leisurely meander and a drink in the sun. The dining scene here is strong and the town's annual Forknight festival is a great time to enjoy special deals and menus at the restaurants across Ipswich.
