Want excellent pub food at Oulton Broad? The Waveney is the answer! Less than 5 minutes walk from the Oulton Broad Yacht Station, this friendly pub has an extensive menu, well beyond what you would normally expect to find in a pub, I would challenge even the most fussy of eaters to not find something on the menu to satisfy...

The food was very good with great service, the staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble for them. Although the decor is basic do not let this put you off as the... More

Read up about this pub in eating out pamphlet. Gave it a shot and boom food out of this world. Had the cod and chips with mushy peas. Oh my days divine flaky fresh cod and batter wonderful. Wife had steak n ale pie. She loved it. All other eateries in Lowestoft look shabby in comparison.

My Mum and I went twice this week the second... More

Friendly staff, good, prompt service. Hot, tasty food, generous portions. Go mid week for 25% off offers. Food home cooked. Proper pies rather than normal micro waved meal with puff pastry cap plonked on top. A bit gloomy unless you get a seat in the window.

When we went in it was pretty full - this was 6.30pmish on a Wednesday evening so I thought that was a really good sign!. The food is good old fashioned pub... More
