Waitress very unpleasant, dont think she has smiled since she had the hives. High chair was a disgrace, they need updated!! Food was ok, nothing special. The pavlova was shop bought meringue, ice cream plopped on it, squirmy cream all over and strawberries whacked on!! Couple of staff were arguing as we waited on bill. Not a great atmosphere at...

We came to this restaurant for lunch. It was very poorly attended and had little atmosphere. The menu offered a large selection of meals. We were greeted by a friendly waiter and received our food quickly. Sadly the food was very average and the vegetables in particular we're overlooked and bland.

as regular visitors to Great Yarmouth my family who have previously eaten in this place before we ordered food and i ordered home made ravioli which when it came was nothing more than bog standard microwave cheap tinned food. Previous visits to this restaurant provided us with great meals but after this we wont be back!

Excellent service, good food, freshly made, relaxing atmosphere and reasonably priced. Recommended. A wide variety of choice on the menu plus a bar. Would go again as was treated and fed like a king.

We thought we'd give The Arches a go the first night of a long weekend away - we chose it on the basis that it was busy, and also that they had a very varied menu. The food was fantastic - we really enjoyed it - and enjoyed it so much we went back again the last night of our... More

My daughter had a milkshake with her meal which reminded me of the... More
