“A pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Living in Lowestoft and from Germany is sometimes a challenge to find good food... We never went in before but it was sunday and just came back frome germany and I didn't want to cook....
So we gave it a try and we where pleasantly surprised by the good food.... We went back several time.
And after the finishing of renovation we will definatly go back...
Lovely English Pub

“Proper pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

This informal pub serves all the normal pub meals you would expect at a decent price. Staff and friendly and helpful.

Visited a few weeks back and it was closed. Hoping for a refurb and it being back in action for our next visit.

“A decent place to visit.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

It's a very decent pub to eat at, and it has a great sea view of Pakefield beach. A tad pricey for a pub in Lowestoft, I would, however, reccommend something as simple as a plate of chips. They're the best seaside chips I've ever had, and I often find myself saying 'these chips aren't as good as Jolly Sailors'.

“Terrible!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Booked a table as was told gets very busy, arrived and was pleasantly greeted and was shown to our table, me and my partner plus two other people were there. Asked if we were having carvery and said yes and was told to go up, was offered a drink so we asked for a coke each. Queued up for food , the man who served us was pleasant enough. Sat down to eat, food wasn't very hot and potatoes were hard. Finished dinner and still never received drink. Went to pay as was gonna be charged for drinks until I mentioned that we never received them, and lady wasn't very apologetic either!!! Won't be coming back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
