For starters and mains we were presented with small portions of beautifully cooked, exquisitely tasting food. An intriguing pink amuse-bouche in shot glass was also very good with a different flavour in each mouthful. Desserts were disappointing with the cake and sponge options chosen by our party all described as ‘dry’. The restaurant itself is small but with a convivial... More

The phrase a hidden gem is very much over used. Upstairs at Bailey's is well hidden and without a doubt one of the best restaurants in East Anglia. I was taken to Bailey's by a friend and having only having visited the downstairs deli for a coffee was not expecting anything special. I was so wrong. The host Javier is... More

I have eaten at Baileys multiple times over the past couple of years and the food just keeps going from strength to strength. Firstly the menu changes daily so every time you visit you know you can expect something new. Secondly the quality of the food is unrivalled, especially within the town of Beccles where many of the establishments are... More

Lunched yesterday. The small lunch menu was delicious and very reasonable. This was equal to any meal that I have eaten in Spain. I started with gnocchi - half of them made with squid ink - and prawns in a creamy marinera sauce. My main was a bean casserole with the tenderest lamb, black pudding and choriza. For dessert there... More

This is an exceptional restaurant. Food served with flair, and cooked with the best ingredients. Service is relaxed and a lot of fun. The cheese board is out of this world. My husband and I had Spanish cod as our main course, which was easily the best cod I have ever eaten in any restaurant. Will be back soon! I... More

Javier is a fabulous host and our lunch menu was excellent. A real treat. We have to return to Beccles to eat from his evening menu.

Viva l'Espana - What a find !!! The very essence of fine dining in a Catalan style. The menu is varied and quite different to other local competition - and by local I mean certainly over many miles. Catalan cooking with Spanish wine in a small but cosy restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

We booked a table here for lunch and were really glad we did as they were completely full. The owner was lovely and made us feel very welcome, the food was fantastic,we were very impressed with all the flavours and skill that had gone into each dish.

This is a great place to eat in Beccles and the quality of the food was excellent. The owner really made us feel welcome and the staff were friendly and helpful. Typical spanish menu with a bit of a twist. This coupled with warm surroundings made it a great night.
