Great food, superb quality and presentation. Excellent, friendly service. The decor and atmosphere is cosy and quaint yet very classy. Perfect venue for a special occasion or romantic dinner. Cannot recommend highly enough.

With a cosy ambience and rustic rural styling, Red Herring is an inviting wine bar that serves a selection of seasonal recipes and fine vintages. Outside there is an intimate patio area with seating amongst the bar's grape vines, with live music events also adding to the ambience.

Elegant tastes of the Mediterranean can be found on the Red Herring menu, with fresh seafood recipes such as pan-seared scallops with celeriac purée, baked chorizo and pancetta crisps. Double-baked cheese soufflé is a popular choice, and comes served with carpaccio of beetroot, candy walnuts and apple batons, and there tastes of the local area with dishes like 28-day aged Norfolk ribeye steak.

Traditional British afternoon teas are a speciality at Red Herring in Lowestoft, with all the trimmings like fresh scones with jam and clotted cream, finely cut sandwiches, and homemade cakes and pastries. Diners can also add a glass of prosecco for an extra treat.

Also serving generous roast dinners on Sundays, Red Herring is a 6-minute walk from Oulton Broad South Rail Station.

    We were a party of 6 & whilst we enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant we were very disappointed with the meal. The 2 fish platters to share were extremely uninspiring. Only 2 of the main courses were acceptable - skate. The pork dishes were the size of most starters with hardly any accompaniments, one carrot! The venison dishes lacked flavour and was not tender.Bar was pleasant.
    We left with the feeling it was not good value, overall the food was not enjoyable and will not be returning.

    Great food, we shared the Charcuterie Board for a starter and it was lovely, we would recommend. I had the Seabass for my main and my husband had the Dover Sole, both were amazing and cooked to perfection. The service is second to none and nothing was too much trouble.

    Food and service everything was just perfect!
    Even kids loved eating there, great food of course, but also very nice friendly staff. I wish they were close to our home...as we found the restaurant during our holiday. We'll definitely go back when we have a chance!
