Description: 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.

We have visited many times over the years. But I am afraid thks was probably our last.
They are trying to modernise things. Although the plastic plate mats don't do it for me, we loved the traditional fine dining experience it used to be.
The seasonal set menu is limited in choice. Also the a'la carte is also lacking in choice. There used to be quite a selection of dishes, but we struggled to choose. Nothing stood out that would make you want to order.
The food was as usual tasty and well presented. Very tiny portion of Veg for 2, with only one piece of broccoli to share.
There are a lot of restaurants now in Ipswich to choose from, so things need to be top notch to make me visit again.

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.

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 i have eaten for as long as I can remember. My husband began with razor clams followed by beautifully pink duck. This was washed down by an excellent St Veran wine. The waiting staff were very good indeed in spite of the fact that at a nearby table (just too far away for me to hear what was going on!) they were dealing with two objectionable customers. I'd heartily recommend a visit to this very professionally run establishment.
