Our Culinary Journey
Having celebrated an encouraging year of growth and expansion in 2022, The Outlook Bar, Café & Restaurant in Ipswich – owned and operated by local company DG Catering – has announced its plans for an exciting programme of events, activities and special theme nights for the coming year, as well as a new commitment to opening its doors seven days a week.
In response to positive customer feedback, The Outlook – located at the heart of Fox’s Marina, with stunning views over the River Orwell and the docks – will now be open to all members of the public for breakfast and lunch seven days a week, as well as offering dinner every Friday and Saturday evening.
Every month, The Outlook will be hosting a lively Dinner & Quiz Night, and there will be Summer Music Nights, Theme Nights and Special Dinner Nights coming up
Opening in Summer 2020, in the midst of the COVID pandemic, The Outlook – which once formed part of the Yacht Club, but now operates independently – has been going from strength to strength. In July 2022, sister coffee shop, Carly’s Kitchen and Coffee House, was launched next door, offering homemade cakes and sausage rolls, as well as convenient 'grab and go' items for the sailing community on its doorstep.
Attila Barkanyi, General Manager at The Outlook, said: “2022 has been a challenging year for everyone, but we are very much looking forward to building upon our success in 2023, along with our sister coffee shop, Carly’s Kitchen and Coffee House.
“We would like to thank all our loyal customers for their continued support, and we hope that our extended opening hours will enable even more members of the public to come along and give us a try!” The Outlook provides an enjoyable informal dining experience, and prides itself on the freshness of its dishes, its attentive customer service and its warm, welcoming atmosphere, along with its convenient, free parking nearby. Its hearty menu is fully prepared in-house, using only fresh, locally-sourced produce, and daily specials are also available. With a large, flexible hosting space and free WiFi, The Outlook has been growing its corporate hospitality offer in recent months. It provides the perfect backdrop for business networking meetings, for up to 45 people, and already plays host to a number of local companies on a regular basis, including neighbouring Penn Commercial and Ipswich Business Networking. The friendly Outlook team is also pleased to welcome private events, wedding receptions, birthday parties, family celebrations and commemorations. The Outlook also offers an alternative dining experience for guests staying at the Premier Inn hotel opposite, who might wish to take in this 'hidden gem on the Marina' and benefit from its picturesque views and convivial setting.
