Location and contact

Since taking over the EAT INN DINER in 2009 our business has transformed drastically. Weconcentrate on sourcing top quality local ingredients from, when possible, local suppliers. Local butchers sausages, local Free Range eggs, thick Suffolk Bacon, local bakers breads etc all help to make the perfect Breakfast, of which, our “Mega” is legendary and not for the faint-hearted!!For lunch, check out our menu on our website, most are home-made on the premises. eat inside( or out if the weathers good) and see what’s new on the specials boards every day.In addition, we've got door step sandwiches, freshly baked baguettes,giant huffer rolls, jacket potatoes all with mouth-watering fillings.

I took my team out for Christmas breakfast and the place was packed! Even though they were busy the team were efficient and the food didn’t take long to come out. The food was very good and we will definitely come back.

Dear W1909uupauls, As nobody is pushed out of any doors here, we have no option but to believe this is obviously not a truthful, honest or genuine review. We presume its done to benefit a competitor of ours. Kind regards The management team

Had jacket potato on first visit. Not great. Was too big and not cooked enough. Should be cooked in oven so the skin is crispy.

Nice little café in the industrial estate. Limited on street parking. The breakfast was great. Good sausages and bacon. Well cooked and good portions. Unfortunately the filter coffee was terrible. I think they had filtered far too much water through the coffee as there was...More

Been here a few times now, used the ‘rear steps entrance’ to enter the place, one word... DISGUSTING! Place has sticky tables and in need of a bit of TLC to say the least. Whilst the food is good, the service could do with a...More
