Super food and staff, very unexpected, portions huge, it's a bit off putting on arrival, but lovely inside with separate and very comfortable restaurant. Fantastic views from the front table and great food.

Probably the best pub in Lowestoft. Good lunch with good beers. When there the weather was not great but would imagine on a sunny day the location would be hard to beat.

We arrived and it was full. We was about to leave when the manager organised a table for us . The service was lovely, especially a waitress called Becky who was very polite and accommodating. The mains and desserts were amazing and everything was great value for money. I cannot wait to return.
