The historic town of Ipswich has a rich and diverse cultural life and benefits from a lively centre packed with independent shops, restaurants, pubs, cafes, theatres and cinemas as well as the stunning Waterfront area that’s dotted with a great variety of bars, bistros and restaurants. We’ve rounded up a couple of places for you to check out and find your new favourite spot for bottomless brunch, ideally located near to your student accommodation in Ipswich.

The Forge Kitchen

Just a five minute walk away from our Suffolk University accommodation, you’ll find The Forge Kitchen. This is brunch with a difference as you can opt for more extravagant dishes like steak and eggs, double stacked waffles or BBQ pulled beef on toast. The best bit is you can choose any dish and get a bottle of Prosecco for just £15. Why not enjoy your brunch on their gorgeous roof terrace? You’ve probably earned yourself a study break!

Price: Bottles of Prosecco are just £15 each!

Whether you’re a first, second or third year student at the University of Suffolk, bottomless brunch usually results in a great time with friends. Remember to drink responsibly and that your Suffolk university accommodation, Athena Hall, is just a stones throw away.


Bottomless Brunch isn’t the only fun thing to do in Ipswich. In fact, there are many great things to do and the city itself has a huge amount of history. For now though, we hope that this blog has given you some inspiration.
