“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We ate twice during our stay a basket meal which was quick and the food was great and a meal in the main restaurant also excellent food and service. Staff could not have been more helpful, it was busy so we had to wait but it was worth it. Do recommend you book.

“Just superb”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

My wife and I had Sunday lunch today at The 12 Lost Churches, and if that was anything to go by, the food here is top notch.
The resrauarnt itself is on the Cliff House holiday site down the Dunwich Heath road. It's well worth going out of your way to find, or visiting whether going to or returning from the National Trust site.
OK, it was a carvery lunch (though my chicken with wild mushrooms in a white wine sauce was cooked individually) but you can usually judge a carvery by the vegetables; they were spot on, properly cooked and imaginative, plenty of choice, and even included sweet potato 'French fries.' I'm a massive foodie, and have eaten in Michelin-starred restaurants; this isn't one of them. It's just superbly cooked, great value fare from a team which clearly cares about its food.
The staff were, without exception, helpful and attentive. The price, well, if I say it was good value at under £9 each, they might put it up a couple of quid. Though that would still be great value.
We're back at Cliff House in June, and looking forward to it already.
