eatingout

Whether you are looking for a quick bite, afternoon tea, or a three course feast, the Waveney Valley has a wonderful selection of eateries to suit every taste, from AA Rosette restaurants to quirky tea rooms.

For those looking for something special, when eating out, why not try The Dove Restaurant in Alburgh and for modern European cuisine, head to the Black Dog in Bungay. Also in Bungay, with an emphasis on locally-sourced produce, the Michelin recommended Castle Inn, is an excellent place for a meal.

If you are looking for a quick bite or afternoon tea, the Waveney Valley has a wide choice in tea and coffee shops.  Catch up on all the local gossip at Rosy-Lee’s Teashop in Loddon or indulge in scrumptious homemade cakes at Earsham Street Café in Bungay or the cosy Twyfords in Beccles.

With intriguing histories, roaring fireplaces and cracking ales, why try one of the Waveney Valley’s inviting pubs. For an outstanding two AA rosette menu, try the Fox and Goose in Fressingfield, situated in the beautiful Tudor guildhall. With a genuine rural pub atmosphere and barrel tapped real ale, the CAMRA award-winning Artichoke in Broome is a must.
