A new campaign has launched in Ipswich to encourage residents and visitors to the town to explore the range of places to eat and drink.

Ipswich Central is backing a campaign, called 'Pour & Explore', which is rewarding those taking part with a free drink with selected mains when eating out at participating restaurants in the Suffolk town until the end of June.

Diners will also have a chance to win a £100 voucher to redeem at their favourite participating venue as part of this promotion.

Participating eateries include Bon Bon, Jacey's Coffee House, Wagamama, The Salthouse, Love Thy Burger and Revolution.

People can collect three stamps on the Pour & Explore bingo card, which they can then submit, along with their name and email address, to the participating venue and they can be entered into the prize draw for £100.

Terry Baxter, chair of Ipswich Central, said: "The weather has turned for the better it seems, so why not reassociate yourself with the really fantastic choice of eateries on offer in the town.

"Pour & Explore offers diners the chance to win a £100 voucher for an Ipswich food and drink venue by eating at three participating restaurants before the end of June, enjoying a free drink in the process.
