Fish, chips and minted peas were very good quality. Great selection of drinks and a good location. If we are in Southwold again we will be back.

Been coming here for over 30 years and I still love it. Some of the best Broadside in Southwold and happy for a pooch to come in as well. Back there for food later in the week! Yummy!
