I have heard good things and was not disappointed! I had a really delicious piece of salmon and my partner had the burger, which he enjoyed. Service was polite and prompt and there was a homely atmosphere about the place. I would visit again :)

Visited last week, having previously had really good food here. Surprised to see that the 2 for £13 menu had gone up to 2 for £15 with a more limited menu. We both had something off the specials board ' a beef roast' and 'steak and kidney pie', both £8.95. My partner's beef arrived, looking like a large stack of... More

This was a second visit. The place is a little like a transport cafe with games machines etc. But you can't fault the service. The food is a bit variable but genrally on the positive rather than the negative side. It is worth more than one visit, I only go for the seafood, the Lobster is reasonably priced, the plaice...

A meal for 3 including a bottle of wine and starters was best part of £100. That did not include desserts. That is Jamie Oliver money - in Lowestoft!

Have always enjoyed eating at the third crossing but the standard of cooking does seem to vary quite considerably. Tonight really was average. Dry steaks, all cooked to medium instead of rare ( didn't want to complain and ruin the night - it was edible but not what we'd asked for) in fact, rather than have desserts and coffees as... More

Fantastic food, service always top class. Lovely restaurant and bar area with lobster aquarium. We use The Third Crossing time and time again and expectations are always met. I am a very fussy eater and they are always happy to accommodate my requests
