We have been going to Great Yarmouth for nearly 14 years and we always look forward to The Arches. It is clean, the menus great, the staff are lovely and the food is wonderful. We go there for dinner every night when we are in GY. The lasagne is to die for and we have never been disappointed with anything.... More

We came across this restaurant whilst looking for somewhere to eat, and wish we had discovered it earlier in our holiday. The young waiter who served us was very attentive, witty and charming and gave us great service. The food was excellent, all being freshly cooked and prepared and of a very good quality. Overall would highly recommend eating here
