“very impressed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

really enjoyed both visits not a fault in my eyes, had lamb shank first visit comes with potatoes and greek salad portion was good and the food very enjoyable, second visit on sunday decided to try the carvery wow had ask the waiter to stop when they put the meat on and very enjoyable nice selection of veg and meats price very resonable was doing a deal if you re-use them within a certain time you get 25% off the bill even with out that very good value.

“OK pub, brilliant for gluten free option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

We went away to Kessingland for the Bank Holiday weekend; which was beautiful.
Unfortunately, I'm wheat-intollerant and a search of gluten free (GF) establishments before we left was disappointing. The search was spread to up to about 40 mins drive from Kessingland.

However, there was one place that offered GF options all the time (there's a place in Southwold which has GF fish & chips one Sat a month), so of course we checked it out!

They have a GF specials, of which Steak Pie was on offer on Sunday and they even had GF gravy on hand, too. It was pretty tasty, considering I haven't had a pie in a long while and the sides (mash; OK, veg; mounds of it! Which, in the grand scheme of things, is how it should be) were OK. But when you need to live by a GF diet, this place was great and a treat.

There were lots of other options - a variety of grilled fish, Greek specials, cavery, vegetarian; even a special burger and rib menu. So something for everyone. The portions are massive, so make sure you're hungry if you go.

And the final massive bonus - it has a wonderful view of the sea.

Good quality food, freshly made, generous helpings at a reasonable price, and they even catered for my gluten free diet.
