When ever we are in Yarmouth, we now always eat at The Arches. It is good, wholesome, large portions of good quality food. Very pleasant atmosphere,and excellent staff and service. Good value for money.

Ordered a curry and rice,looked like an Iceland frozen ready meal,an omelette and chips,actually looked like pizza and chips,the worst omelette ever,never again would I eat there,should have walked out when I saw other diners leave half their meals.... Tip of the day!!! Go to Harry ramsdens,if that's closed ... Go without

Amazing we visit every year without fail this is our 7th year. It doesnt look much but the food is beautiful always hot.

The Arches is a cracking little restaurant. The staff always seem to please me with nice compliments. The food is amazing, I recommend the lasagne which is meaty,cheesy and delicious. The first time I went there was when I was 2 years old and I still remember the lovely atmosphere the place holds.

We came in just before closing with a child aged 10-they shut quite early at 9pm but still came up with a good meal. Décor a bit shabby-placemats worn out and look over 20 years old.
