Had an absolutely fab time however I found it rude and disrespectful that a 30% gratitude charge was added to the bill!! After the fantastic service we would have tipped but £70 is ridiculous!

Very good food. Lovely atmosphere. However one of the male waitors was wearing his mask below his nose the entire visit. There is no point using PPE and maintaining distance if you are wearing your mask below your nose. Very disappointed in that respect as it added a level of unsafety to an otherwise lovely meal.

Absolutely fantastic bottomless prosecco brunch. Staff were so attentive, friendly and helpful. Venue was clean, spacious and very covid-safe. My only slight grumble is that we could have done with a bit more food, especially given the amount of prosecco provided! It’s quite a small portion!

The food was simple but delicious and we enjoyed our visit. The staff were very helpful and polite and service was good. It was concerning that tables were not 2m apart and there was no facility to record contact details for track and trace!

The burger was so dry...service was also below average, no one has checked whether food was ok and not collected our plates after 15minutes until we ask for a bill.

It was a difficult day because of Covid-19 but staff were friendly and polite. Elliott did an excellent job and the food was delicious. Our party wish all the staff at Aurora well considering the circumstances which are daily becoming more challenging.

This is the 2nd year our group of eight have had pre Christmas Lunch at Aurora bar and restaurant. We have thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The staff are so nice the food excellent and that must be the best view in a restaurant in Ipswich. It is hard to please eight people but eight people came away really pleased well fed and looked after. So thank you Aurora we were so pleased we are going to fit in a summer get together at Aurora.

Had an amazing experience with the bottemless brunch for my 30th birthday, the waiter was fantastic, organised and kept our glasses topped up. Would definitely be back for more bottemless brunch :)

Had a great lunch and afternoon at Aurora. Would definitely recommend. Personally I would have liked to have seen a steak option on the menu for lunch. Other than that, really good, great food, wine and cocktails in a nice setting all at a reasonable price. Keep up the good work!!
