The Ipswich Society posted on its Facebook page that the popular eating venue – which closed in December – will reopen on April 30.

The post read: “We hear from the owner that this popular eating venue is to re-open on April 30 under new management, but this time based on a wine bar theme under a Roux-trained chef, who also used to work at the Dorchester Hotel on London’s Park Lane.

“This will bring the eating outlets on the waterfront back to 17 - all independents except for Pizza Express, ranging from the Coffee Link coffee bar right through to the four star Salthouse Harbour Hotel Restaurant and Bar.”
