    Fantastic birthday treat. It's not the first time I've been here as I took a friend for afternoon tea last summer, and that's why I went back again. It was such a lovely experience. The service, the food, the view and the ambience all make it such a pleasure to be there. The friendly staff had lots of customers to deal with, but they all stayed calm and polite. The only thing I would advise, is to allow time for the excellent food to be prepared and served. It's not a fast food outlet where food lays around under the heat lamp in the hope you'll come in and buy it. If you're able to sit, relax and enjoy your company and surroundings, this is the place to be.

    A splendid meal for the second of our two evenings in Southwold with the novelty of dining on a pier. Would happily recommend to friends.

    We had a lovely meal which was pork cutlets with fresh vegetable, it was delicious. We then had a peach Melba to share, WOW. I congratulate you on the fact that it was not covered in 'squirty cream' or any cream for that matter. It was superb poached peaches, fresh raspberries and a mouthwatering raspberry sorbet, it was to die for. Thank for a dessert you could actually taste all the flavours in it.

    My friend and I both had the afternoon tea and it was superb. Absolutely huge and so very tasty. If you're of a delicate disposition it may be wise to split one between two people, but we each had our own. We did both have to take home several pieces, but that made a perfect supper later on. Bargain! The service was great too, with attentive but not overbearing staff. I'll definitely be going back and recommending the experience to other friends.

    Had an enjoyable meal The prawns in our pasta dish were very small and disappointing but although the dish was tasty disappointing at the end and when the bill came it wasn’t pointed out that there was a 10% service charge so without realising we paid that charge we would have liked to pay slightly less apart from that, yes we would return but would watch out for this next time

    We had a great evening. We are regulars every summer and it never fails to keep us happy. The specials are always a favourite with the crispy sea bass with samphire and chorizo a winner this year. Staff are always so helpful and friendly.
    Sometimes the service can be slow, this rarely bothers us but with younger children it could be an issue.
    Can be very busy and then its noisy and a bit crowded, so book a bit later to avoid the busy times.
