dont let the dated decor put you off!

We visited this restaurent a number of times on our recent holiday in Great Yarmouth. I was initially reluctant to eat there as it looks very dated inside, however, my father wasn't too well and needed something to eat so I gave in. The food was great, it was hot, freshly cooked and very enjoyable... read more

Our normal restaurant had decided to open later, so we had to look elsewhere and came across this nice place. There was a large selection on the menu. We found the food came in good portions and was well priced. We also found the staff friendly and helpful. We were so happy , that we paid a second visit in... More

Good friendly service, good portions, tasty food, and good value. We ate here twice during our week's holiday because it was so good. We weren't disappointed on either occasion. Beware ordering the 'large' cod or plaice and chips dinner - it isn't necessarily and larger cut of fish, just more of it. My boyfriend ordered a large plaice and chips... More

Today we visited The Arches in Great Yarmouth for an evening meal. The restaurant was quite quiet. We were greeted by a very friendly waiter who showed us to our table ( a booth) straight away. Our order was taken very quickly. Surprising there is a wide variety of food to choose from. Our food was given to us quickly... More

Went on a day out on mums birthday. The service was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Mum has a mobility scooter, we found them very accommodating and helpful. The food was just as good and very reasonably priced. The children were also looked after very well. Thank you.

The food was inedible. Frozen veg not fresh, food brought too quickly and it was cold as if it had been standing and made earlier. I can't believe we actually paid for this rubbish too! I will never go back again, not even if you paid me.

Tried the Arches for the first time tonight. Food was of a good standard, and the staff were friendly. Good value for the money and quite a nice atmosphere in there which added to the whole experience. We would eat there again next time we visit Yarmouth.
