Excellent Food

Having visited many times, The Waveney has never failed to impress me. The décor is that of a traditional pub but the quality of the food and the prices are excellent; offering 20% off Mon-Sat.

Have visited The Waveney several times now. Don't be put off by the exterior or decor (could do with some tlc) because the food is fantastic; fresh ingredients, excellent preparation, friendly staff, well presented and a really varied menu to suit all tastes (the freshly daily delivered fish is fantastic !). Oh, and there's a free car park.

Had a great piece of skate. Not busy so service pretty prompt. Try to get a window seat as pub is pretty gloomy inside

Good surrounding first class food at a reasonable price Don't expect fast service as this is a pub and unable to guarantee how many customers want food at once Overall good service and friendly

This is a step above the average pub/restaurant in terms of the choice of dishes available. Added to this is the availability of 25% on certain ranges of food on different days. This makes it superb value for money. The food we chose was extremely well cooked. The steak was as near perfection as all but the very best restaurants... More

Lovely home-cooked food. Went for Sunday lunch had lovely home made fish pie with vegetables - six different veg plus roast potatoes, all freshly prepared and piping hot. No room for pudding. My partner and his father had mince and onion pie and said it was just as good. Staff friendly. Kitchen immaculately clean

Very good service and choices. I had vegetable lasagne, was the best I have had in a restaurant for a long time. The other ladies I was with all enjoyed their meals too.

I absolutely love the good here. Always come but lately the service I really don't know what has gone on. There is no friendly smiles, no one checking on your meals, no one asking for drinks we had to get up 3 times through our whole meal to get more drinks while they were having lovely little chat behind the...
