Perched on the buzzing and vibrant seafront, Harry Ramsden’s Great Yarmouth is the perfect place to enjoy fresh fish and chip dishes in a postcard-perfect seaside setting.

Famed for its classic fish and chips and a closely guarded secret recipe, Harry Ramsden’s restaurants are a true favourite amongst the nation. Found in various UK locations, Harry Ramsden’s is a British institution, having served delicious fish dishes and British classics since 1928, when Harry Ramsden set up his first takeaway store.

Fresh and carefully sourced, the cod, plaice and haddock are deliciously battered and served with homemade chunky chips, and soused with salt and vinegar. Beautifully fresh fish isn’t all Harry Ramsden’s is famous for: the menu boasts great British dishes such as the mouth-watering premium pie and mash, or the chicken and scampi special. Harry Ramsden’s chip shop also has a fun and tasty kids' menu for the little ones, and signature dishes for senior diners.

Great Yarmouth Rail Station is just a 6-minute drive away.

    Booked a table here before a Yarmouth circus show.
    Arrived on time - as soon as we made an order, we we were told that we would have to wait 25 mins for our food (no starters, 2 x fish and chips + 1 x burger and chips).
    Restaurant was not particularly full, but decided to accept the time delay as had nowhere else to go.
    When order eventually arrived (approx 30 mins) food was fine but mushy peas not hot enough (table nearby had sent theirs back as cold). Side order of gravy was not delivered until asked for. Strange idea of no cutlery on table - food is delivered, then cutlery in a bucket !
    Drinks delivered earlier were fine but pot of tea was given with only 2 sachets of sugar - had to ask for extra sugar to enjoy the rest of the pot.
    Food overall was fine but biggest gripe is the time before you receive your order. It is lucky we decided to allow 1 1/2 hrs before the show or we would not have made it.
    Seems that the takeaway section (next door) receives priority over the restaurant section ( who is going to wait 30 mins for a takeaway ?)
    Restaurant customers are paying a premium (approx 100%) over takeaway customers - why don't they receive the according service ?
    Oh - and the toilets in the basement have possibly the narrowest cubicles I have ever seen ! Didn't notice if they have separate disabled toilets on the ground floor but if not, there is no way they would make it down the stairs or enter the cubicles.

    Food was a good standard, service too was warm and friendly, however staff training was taking place within the seating area, appreciate space may well be a premium, but as a paying guest do I really need to know all of Harry’s up selling techniques?
    Shame would have been a great visit if not for that
    Happy to discuss further :07720 808690

    All four of us enjoyed all our food very much and being seated upstairs we enjoyed the views of the seafront whilst we dined. All staff were friendly but the female staff all called me " love"at every opportunity. Fish described as Large were normal size to us and we found chip portions to be rather small, saying that they were all cooked to perfection. The only downer was the upstairs gents was tatty and blocked during our visit.

    We found the food wasn't nice in fact it was horrible, that night I was actually ill I was actually going to complain

  • (((** 6 April 2017 by Angela Parish from Great Yarmouth

    Cod and chips was great and kiddies meal was good value. The only criticism I would have is the cleanliness of the floor, it was very dirty.

  • ((*** 29 March 2017 by Diane Roper from Brantham

    When we arrived we were told we were booked upstairs but I had left a request for a ground floor table as my mum can't walk upstairs, they sorted us a table but took almost 15mins to take our order, we had to wait 25 mins for our meals, they were lovely and hot when we received them but were a bit disappointed about the size of the meals

  • ((((( 18 September 2016 by Catherine from Clacton on sea

    Waitress was perfect. Gave full information on food and drinks. Gave different cooking methods if we didnt want fried fish. Lots of choice. Fish was lovely tasty and fresh not too much batter. We had haddock which had lovely flavour.Got peas ,chips,bread and butter and tartare sauce.Medium fish was big. Not noisy in there even though it got busy.

  • (**** 7 September 2016 by Jonathan Barham from Harwich

    Fish was very nice. Chips were old and dryed up. Had killed 10 flys before dinner and lost count how many after it. Floor was slippery and staff were in no rush to clear or keep the place clean and tidy.
