Description: The Boardwalk Restaurant is a family-friendly restaurant serving delicious food all day from 10.00am. Many of the ingredients are locally sourced. Open everyday of the year except Christmas Day, we serve morning coffee and cakes from 10.00am, lunches from 11.30am through to the early part of the afternoon, cream teas are a speciality in the afternoon. In the summer months we do high tea for children from 5.30pm and then suppers all evening. The hours are slightly shorter in the autumn and winter months, please check our website for daily opening hours. Sit inside or enjoy sitting on the boards outside enjoying some of the finest views of Southwold. Fully licensed, there is no nicer place to have a pint of Adnams or a glass of wine, listening to the sound of the waves beneath your feet! Please note: our food service hours are 11.30am - 4pm, and 5pm - 8.30pm. These times are weather permitting and therefore can change.

My wife and I ate here last week. Both the food and the service were top class and the setting was lovely. The only gripe we had was that the prices given on the menu were before VAT which these days is unusual and, I believe is slightly misleading.

Lunch here was good, unfortunately trip adviser do not have that as a category. We had the fish and chips and that was good. No old oil, no overcooked fish, chips nice and fresh and everything served nice and hot - all that was also good. Those that had the pork belly were deeply let down and the puddings were lacklustre. However, the setting is worth a lot. You sit there, on the pier, looking out the window (no draughts) and watch the angry sea do its worst. I would say that this is one of those restaurants where one ought to choose safety options (like the fish and chips) and just enjoy the view.

First of all the restaurant is in a great setting on the pier with views of the beach. Lovely. It's not cheap but I'm always happy to pay a little bit extra for a nice meal in a nice place. I thought it was very good but my friend was a bit disappointed with his main for the price. We did had a problem though as our side order was forgotten by the staff and finally arrived when we'd nearly finished our main. As a result we didn't leave a tip but I'd certainly go back though.
