Sure enough she came took our order and drinks were soon brought over. My wife ordered the chicken carbonara and was looking... More

Myself and my partner stayed in Oulton broad four years ago when we got engaged and we went to this pub, we travel down at least once a year to go back to this specific pub because the food is top quality, staff are lovely and the portions are immense! We went back only two days ago and nothing has... More

After a first visit to The Waveney I felt I had to write a review regarding the fantastic food, service and welcoming atmosphere. We were a party of 12 including 4 young children, we were welcomed warmly and the children were given high chairs and crayons immediately which meant that the adults could relax and look at the menu. We... More

I've had several meals from The Waveney including Roast Lamb, Curry, Chilli, Thai Specials and the most delicious, fresh, large creamy flaked and undyed huge piece of Smoke Haddock I have ever had in my life.

I came into the Waveney just for a pint after a long day at work. I looked at the food menu just to see what they had, the barman suggested for me to try the scampi. The waiting time for the food was no longer than 20 minutes and the portion was very reasonable. The food was delicious and full... More

Waveney2016, Owner at The Waveney, responded to this review

Hi Dawn, Not really sure about this review? It sounds a little dubious and vague, especially after the kitchen has been closed for 8 days. The staff comment doesn't sound right either. If you are going to complain via TripAdvisor we would like the review have a little bit more detail. Date, time, actual sandwich consumed. We could then address... More

We live in lowestoft and used to visit the Waveney regularly as the food was good for the price with the 25% discounts, which meant you tolerated the dated decor and carpet held together with electrical tape. Apparently, this pub has changed hands recently, and they have changed their meal discounts. To make the discount more "for locals", the "25%... More

Hi, thank you for your review. We have been here just 5 months and in that time have totally refurbished the sports bar, the toilets and this week refurbished and installed new kitchen equipment. The restaurant will be refurbished in September and your anonymous and somewhat trite comments regarding the decoration will be addressed. The power of selective anonymous reviewing... More
