Good menu with daily specials. Lovely fresh fish cooked to perfection and served with a smile. I don't know why you need 25 words. I said it all in 16.

As always, fabulous food and service! Warm welcome, great choice of food and reasonably priced. Love the 'sample' puddings with coffee - just right and delicious!

Excellent atmosphere and service. We visited Sunday evening and my roast beef was rare, as requested and with the Superbly cooked potatoes, crunchy veggies and batter pudding. I couldn't resist the Chocolate bread and budding pudding with custard. My wife chose the lamb and was equally impressed by the quality of food

Everything about the Fountain is great. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is there and the staff are the best. They dont ask about how your meal is until you have at least got through part of your meal which happens sometimes, they are polite, friendly and very good at what they do. The food menu is not huge but there are always specials and I think this is why the food is always cooked perfectly. The miniature desserts are a bonus as I am usually full but I can fit one of these in.

Excellent food and service. I regularly go to The Fountain and I am always happy coming out. I always recommend The Fountain as one of the best restaurants in Ipswich.

Even though it was a busy Valentine's day we were treated to a really relaxed dining experience. It was only as we left that we realised our family were the last to go and they were setting up for evening service. The meal was really enjoyable, great choice on the menu and specials. We were so spoilt for choice, we'll just have to go back and try it all!

We had a lovely lunchtime meal, the restraunt was packed, so glad I had booked. The only reason I have not given a 6 rating is because the menu was a bit confusing. With starters being available as mains, a set menu that was also priced separately and some items in the specials board that could be part of the set menu and others that could not. You need to simplify that, then I would have rated higher.

Despite passing The Fountain many times this was our first visit and we were pleased to find friendly staff. A comfortable and relaxed location with lovely food at reasonable prices. We will definitely return.

Superb food, excellent service and good value for money. I will be going back. The Fountain is the ideal venue for an intimate diner or a family gathering.
