The Marquis

A luxury hotel, restaurant & bar situated in Layham, Ipswich, South Suffolk, perfect for relaxation with beautiful views of the River Brett.

Opening Season

A luxurious hotel, restaurant & bar with 10 en-suite rooms each one has their own unique features and textiles. Some rooms have features from the previous building, which was The Marquis of Cornwalls (Pub) whilst other rooms offer a more modern feel.

Our most popular is the Cornwallis Suite, featuring an outside balcony area with spectacular views over the River Brett. Our restaurant consists of a bold open kitchen and a creative signature menu that will amaze and delight you. The floor to ceiling panoramic windows span the length of our restaurant offering diners a truly special perspective of the Brett Valley that changes with the seasons. Pairing contemporary style with traditional comfort, it’s the perfect place to meet, relax and enjoy a drink with friends. Three large brick fireplaces and original features create a warm and timeless atmosphere that invites you to sit back and stay a while.

Our barman has a fresh approach to the drinks menu, mixing familiar favourites with some uncommon names to encourage guests to perhaps try something new.

Having over 160 different wines lining the walls, our wine cellar is available to book for dining and various occasions, offering a more intimate experience for couples or parties of up to 8 people. For parties of up to 12 people, we offer our Private Dining Room.

Whether you pop for a drink in our bar/lounge areas or dining in our restaurant to staying in the hotel, we wish to make every experience at The Marquis a memorable one.
