We stopped here on way to brewery tour just to kill time and have a bite. Well, my husband loved the homemade sausage rolls and my smoked fish platter was excellent. The salad with it was unusual and wonderful. Cress and sunflower seeds in lovely dressing. Best lunch I had all our long weekend - has nice shop attached (or... More

We've had a Tea or Coffee here a number of times and found it OK. Never seen anything to temp us into having food. I would expect with the Adnams name behind them there would be something a little special. IT'S OK

We visited the Adnams café today with our cockapoo and we were made very welcome. Dogs are also welcome in the shop where they sell stylish Adnams branded dog bowls! Make sure you try the delicious Ghost Ship rarebit made with th3 Adnams beer of the same name.

Worthwhile addition to a Southwold trip - both the shop and the cafe. Cafe staff are really nice - for example they made sure that the piece of carrot cake we selected was the best they had. And a real plus - the Adnams customer car park is within view of the cafe.

Attached to the Brewery shop this cafe is really handy, but a bit cold in winter! Dog friendly is a real bonus. Menu limited but all wholesome, good coffee too

I've always wanted to have breakfast at Adnams, so for a treat whilst staying nearby for Christmas this year, we did. It's not cheap, considering what it is, but asides from the bacon (which was way too overdone), it's very, very good. I wouldn't make a regular habit of it but as a one-off, it's something else ticked off the... More
