“Just delicious!!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

We visited this restaurant on Sunday 1st Dec. We were a party of 6, and we were seated quickly after arriving. Drinks order was taken and delivered quickly. My hubby and myself had not eaten there before, so we were very pleased with the amount of different choices from the usual fish and chips ect....The carvery, i will say, was the BEST i had ever eaten outside of my mum-in-laws house!!!! The quality of the meats were full of flavour and well cooked, piping hot as well. Portions are very generous!! The vegetables are fresh, tasty and not a frozen roasty to be seen. They ARE delicious by the way. Plus, you are invited to go back for more if wanted, but if you had seen my plateful, you would see this was NOT going to be needed, and i wasted nothing. We were well attended by the waiting staff, they are so helpful. cheerful and nothing was too much trouble. It is lovely and clean everywhere, so if you want a great value meal (desserts are FAB to), then make for here. I intend to make this THE eatery of choice when we visit Felixstowe.
If you do not have the time to eat in, the takeaway next door is their's as well, also delicious and cooked to order. I would recommend booking your table as it does get very busy.
I recommend this place to everyone.

“amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

this has to be the most amazing fish and chip shop/restaurant ever, the queue will be long but the staff are amazing, the quality never falters the portions huge, its set by the beach and you will see bodies sitting everywhere eating chips from the regal... worth a visit just for the regal.

“good food food served in great surroundings by superb staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

Can't find anything to fault this restaurant, apart from giving my sister in law a bigger piece if fish than mine. The portions are more than ample, served freshly cooked by very pleasant staff. Good value meals, a must to visit for anyone liking fish and chips. For those who don't, there are plenty of alternatives to make the visit a memorable one.

“Excellent Carvery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

Couldn't believe it. 4 slices of either beef, lamb, gammon or turkey, it was tender and tasty, so much veg to choose from as well. The Yorkshire puds were home made. I've had carvery's in the past but never had 4 slices of meat. The plate was a decent size as well often the plates are small so you can't get much on it. I will definitely go again. Well done
