This is a hidden gem in the main street in Halesworth. Hardly any frontage to the café but a very warm welcome when you get in. Although as we are from Norfolk we were asked if we had our passports ready (joke)! they cater very well for Gluten free diets. As we take Mother-in-law this is very important. You have... More

We think it is only right that the time has come to highlight the "man behind the scenes" at this small extremely friendly restaurant. Chef Kevin Prime, works tirelessly to produce stunning fresh food. He is also willing to go the extra mile and accommodate all preferences, tastes and dietary needs. His cakes, sausage rolls and stunning range of doughnuts... More

Here in 2014 we have revisited this wonderful eatery with just our selves and with friends. The owners never disappoint. Wonderful personal friendly service and delicious food.... and wait for it their home baked cheesecakes are truly scrumptious. When I tasted their summer fruits cheesecake I didn't want it to end , It was the same with their baileys and... More

This is the second time we have been for lunch, and it was just as good as the last one. My beef lasagne was excellent and her scampi was 'quality', and for under £6 each. No wonder it's so busy with return customers. I'm looking forward to a return visit.

What can I say but Edward's is a little jewel in the Halesworth dining experience, a definite must if you love delicious home cooked food and dessert is not to be skipped! The whole experience is completed by the more than genial host who is charming and hilarious a real character. And all for an incredibly reasonable price....Excellent!!

Visiting Halesworth for first time while on holiday in Suffolk. Saw Edward's and entered. Very full of guests but they found us a table. Really friendly staff served us two lunches, soft drinks, desserts, coffee for under £20 - pensioners' Thursday deal. Would go back again if in the town at lunchtime.

Having read the positive reviews on trip advisor decided to have breakfast here before the Saturday auction. Clearly popular but served quickly and standard of breakfast was very good. The bacon was very tasty and and food plentiful, will certainly be back. The homemade cakes looked good. Staff efficient and friendly

Lovely little find & one of the best roast dinners we've had. Meat, roast potatoes, Yorkshires and vegetables all cooked to perfection, big portions and well priced so what's not to like about this place! My daughter normally doesn't like roast dinners but she ate her plate clean, and even asked if she could come back again! Lovely, friendly host... More

Popped in for a coffee, given complimentary cheese scone! Never had a cheese scone before but will soooo have again! Coffee great as was the service and ice cream to die for! If you are near Halesworth in Suffolk make a point of visiting Edwards! Home made food at its best!
