Lunchtime on a sunny Saturday and we were lucky to get table by double opening windows overlooking the garden and the Broads. Prawn Wrap was excellent and came with tasty salad and French fries. Very filling and well presented. The Greene Jack Summer Dream is highly recommended and nice to see a local mini brewery ale on sale there.

Had lunch here today 24th July and what a lovely place to have your lunch. The view across the broads is amazing and the food was great. The service from the staff we received was also very good and there`s nothing negative to say about this place and I will be going back there next time i`m in the area.

Went to The Commodore for lunch yesterday (21 July) for my wife's 50th bIrthday. There were 11 adults plus a one year old. We were on a long table and we will start with the view - stunning. Nice big plate glass windows allowing views over Oulton Broad. The first meal out was the children's burger - not your standard... More

Great view of the Broads if you are lucky enough to get a table near the window. Reasonably priced quality bar food. Will definately return.

A regular haunt as a youngster but time moves on and people move away and life changes so it was with great anticipation that i found myself returning to a much heralded Commodore after many years. And what a disappointment - dirty interior, bar staff barely old enough to be legal and not caring much about anything, no atmosphere and... More

This is a large establishment which is well placed on the edge of the Broads enjoying tremendous views. However, in terms of it's upstairs restaurant it could be so much better. Firstly , it is hot and lacks ventilation/air conditioning. Secondly the service we received was embarrassing to say the least. There was no ice in the "iced tap water'... More

I went to the commodore on a night out and must say the views and setting is stunning. The beer was very well kept and most important it was cold. I didn't have any food but from what I saw it looked lovely. On a whole I would definitely recommend a visit.

Went for midweek lunch. Lovely views which takes your eyes away from the dirty tables etc. Service was poor and the food was at best average. Shame as with the surroundings this place should be a lot beet than it is. Poor management!

I thoroughly recommend this pub restaurant for any occasion but it's at its best on a sunny afternoon/evening when you can sit outside and admire the stunning views of the broads. The staff are friendly and the food is awesome. The onion rings are sublime with a tempura batter which honestly tastes like it's made from fairy dust! Burgers were... More

Went for a bar meal mid week. Service quick and friendly. All had the special lamb wraps with french fries and salad garnish. All ok except for the french frys were soggy and lacked colour. Beer great and wonderful atmosphere in the bar area. Alot of people in the garden. Must try the home made pizza next time at about... More
