“delicious and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We dined here on a Friday night and there was a cosy intimate atmosphere with relaxed and friendly staff. The food was delicious throughout as was the wine. Well worth booking up!

“Friendly staff,excellent food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Went with friends on a Friday night.Not the largest of restaurants but this added to the ambience of the place.All the staff were really friendly and enjoyed some banter with us.Wine reasonably priced and all the food beautifully cooked.I personally thought the scallop starter was either overpriced or could have been slightly more generous in size but the duck main course was perfect.My wife's steak was the best she has eaten for a long time.Desserts were obviously very good as all I could hear was sounds of yum and Mmm.Been to more expensive,so called posh, trendy restaurants all over the world and coasters is up there with them with the added extra of friendly normal suffolk staff.also I will just add we live 10 miles away and I had never heard of coasters until I checked trip adviser but will return and hopefully have a great night again.

“Well earned reputation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Booked this for Sunday lunch with friends and our combined 4 children. Restaurant was tremendous and service superb. Roast beef and pork were brilliant and friends who had the crab was suitably impressed. Good drinks menu as well and value very good! Haven't tried Sutherland House (no 1 restaurant in Southwold) but it must be truly out of this world to better Coasters. Must try if you visit Southwold

“Simply Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

I cannot stress highly enough how wonderful Coasters is. The staff have a great knowledge of the food and are so friendly they add to the whole joy of the meal. Every dish is wonderfully presented and at no time are you made to feel rushed, Go, Enjoy and go again

“Very good, going on excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The second best restaurant in Southwold according to Trip Advisor (we were advised that Sutherland House was too grand tho' it didn't look it through the window!) so we tried it. Excellent service, friendly and professional and generally excellent food. My pea and mint soup was wonderful, as was my friend's tempura prawns and scallops. Unfortunately my battered haddock was over-cooked and the chips disappointing so a signature dish let them down.
