We took a visitor to this lovely pub on the road out to Shingle Street. The windy lane leading down to the Deben and where the pub sits surrounded by assorted boats and dingys. The pub serves real ale and a good lunch menu. We can recommend the fish cake with egg and holandaise sauce.

We went for Sunday lunch. It was not full (if it was it may have excused the poor level of service). It took a long while to be served (and asking a waiter to take our order) and we had to chase up our drinks order. When the food arrived it was good quality but tepid. The bar was full... More

What a let down on a Thai staple. Watery insipid tasteless. £13 for the privilege of eating soup with a knife and fork. Judging by other reviews it seems it's not an isolated incidence. I've eaten this dish many times in Thailand and the UK.

A charming, remote spot on the estuary, not where you'd normally expect to see signs of life, save birds, boats and long-distance walkers. But what you find is an unpretentious, civilised hostelry, verandah, restaurant and professional staff. Lovely place for a lunch party, which we had.

After a long days sail this weekend we anchored a couple of miles up river and walked down the back to this pub. Previously we have enjoyed good food and beer. However when we arrived we were told the pub was shut for a private party. This was very disappointing. There were plenty of outside tables we would have been... More

Two visits in three weeks. On both occasions the food was particularly average. Yesterday incredibly oily batter, tasteless fish and warm rather than hot chips. Absolutely no enthusiasm or welcome from the staff, most seemed to be carrying an expression that you'd normally associate with someone with acute stomach ache. A smile doesn't cost much!!

I have given the two stars for the view & service. I went with friends for lunch, if I had been on my own I would have complained greatly. Ordered Fish & Chips, what I was served was not that. A large hard bit of batter with a very small fish inside.The batter was not eatable. Also I asked for... More

Lunch with family. Retrospectively realise shouldn't have ordered this dish. Other meals were fine, Thai red curry was a very watery soup like dish and impossible to eat with fork. When asked how the (very unfinished) meal was, I relayed this info and response was that if I was familiar with Thai curry I'd realise this was how it should... More

Visiting a friend in nearby Orford for the weekend, we decided to swim at nearby Shingle Street on a sunny Saturday. Having heard good things about The Ramsholt Arms, we decided to have lunch there. My friends and I ordered the fish & chips, smoked fish platter and cheeseburger. Although the pub was busy being a weekend in the school... More

I've been visiting the Ramsholt Arms for 20 years, through changes of landlord and variable quality of food. I was happy to see it under new ownership and went last Friday. The updated decor is really nice and they have a lot of great tables outside. The location is obviously perfect and can't be beat in all weathers for it's... More
