Group of 20 adults/kids camping in Southwold during August

Hello, we are a group of four families going to Southwold in the Summer hols and appreciate it is difficult to book tables etc during peak season. Which are the best pubs/restaraunts that can accomodate such a large party. Any other advice greatly recieved too. Thanks.

That's a tough question as it will depend on how busy the pub/restaurant is when you go there. Depending on the size of the tables you are going to need probably three to five of them and all next to each other.

The lord nelson and sole bay inn pubs would probably be a problem as there isn't really a large area for eating in either pub. I also doubt the red lion would suit you either as its quite small inside.

Your best bet would probably be the crown and swan hotels or the harbour inn which is close by the camp site.

For the sole bay inn you could perhaps give them a call and ask them and they may be able to rearrange the tables somehow

Not been to the blue lighthouse restaurant so can't comment on that one. There is also another hotel/restaurant in the high street called the Sutherland. Not been there myself but it could be another option for you

As there are so many of you, i would phone ahead and ask each of the above establishments to be sure

Would point out that the Lord Nelson, great place, has an outside area where perhaps you could reserve tables.

Also Harbour Inn has outside places.

Nelson contact details:-

Harbour Inn contact

Also why not look at this place:-

Sole Bay Fish Company, it's along by the harbour and they sell fish platters, you bring your own wine & bread/butter!
