An Ipswich restaurant has won a prestigious award for its food.

The Grill at Twenty5, in St Nicholas Street, Ipswich, was awarded a blue ribbon by the Good Food Awards, recognising their food quality, service and value.

Gavin Robson, manager at the grill, said: "We strive for recognition like this every day— it's very rewarding to hear that people are making nice comments.

"There is a small team of three full time people here, plus some kids on the weekend. Everyone is very dedicated and between us we've got decades in the industry. 

"We are an English restaurant, the food is our pride and passion. We have no frozen ingredients, well, except the ice cream."

The current, mother and son, ownership pair Tina and James Leamon took the restaurant over in 2019. 

Mr Robson added: "They're super passionate, and excellent bosses. Best owners I've ever worked with.
