- Arlingtons sits on the corner of Museum Street and is perfect for the special occasion or more romantic dinner, though they do cater for lunches. Providing a number of options, from curries, to steaks and vegetarian options, it is ideal for a range of tastes. Arlington’s menu usually indicates which dishes are or can be made gluten free, and if you ask, they may also give you a gluten free menu or specify exactly which options are available gluten free on the current menus. I had a delicious Korma here, with gluten free naan bread. I suspect it was homemade as I have never been able to find it anywhere else. Highly recommend. To view their current menu, click here
- @TwentyFive is a family ran restaurant located down Star Lane, a short walk from Ipswich City Centre. Surrounded by cosy beams, this is a wonderful restaurant for atmospheric dinners; dates, dinners with friends, family occasions. Their menu has a great variety of vegetarian, fish and meat options, serving everything from burgers, to fish dishes, lasagnes, cakes etc. Most of the dishes are or can be altered for gluten free. Personally recommend the gluten free veggie burger which I’ve enjoyed on several occasions.
Walking into the Cosy Club is like walking into Baz Lurhman’s Moulin Rouge, and the eccentric bohemian decor does, as the name would suggest, make the whole place feel pretty cosy and exclusive.
