“Good Pub Grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

I went to the Waveney this week with a group of friends. I have been there several times in the past and was always pleased with the food and service. This time was no exception.

As it was near Christmas a set menu at £19.95 was provided with enough choice on the starters, mains and desserts to please everyone. There were also several or more vegetarian options. Coffee and mints were also included. I think extremely good value for the price and the portions were enormous!

The service as usual was excellent and friendly.

I will return again.

“Excelland meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

I went with a group of friends to The Waveney, Oulton Broad on Tuesday 2nd October for lunch. There was a wide choice of dishes on the menu at reasonable prices and we were pleased to see that if we chose from the "old favourites or pies" we would get 25% off our bill. There were eight of us and seven of us chose from the "old favourites". Three of us had different roasts, costing £7.50p each (me included) and the meat covered almost two thirds of the plate, there were boiled and roast potatoes as well as parsnips, carrots, cabbage and peas. (There was too much for one of the three and she asked and was given a doggy bag to take the meat home.) The others had chilli con carne, lasagne or curry, all good portions and we all enjoyed our meals.
Now, the downside. One of our party had king prawns in butter sauce. She spent most of the time trying to shell the prawns, which, being in butter sauce made her fingers very greasy. We had to ask for a finger bowl for her (which in our opinion should have been given in the beginning). By the time she had finished shelling her prawns her chips were almost cold. She said although it was very tasty, she would not choose it again and we all agreed that neither would we. It would have been much better, in our opinion, for the prawns to be shelled beforehand, with perhaps one or two with shells on on top.
I found the venue rather dark as the only lights were small ceiling ones or a few wall lights.
I would definitely go again.
