Boardwalk Restaurant

Open today from 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm

It’s hard to decide what’s best about eating at the Boardwalk Restaurant: the views or the food. It’s a good job you can enjoy them both at the same time …

Excellent cooking and unbeatable views meet at the Boardwalk Restaurant. Whether you’re catching up with friends for tea, treating your family to lunch, enjoying a special evening à deux, or simply here on the spur of the moment – you’re assured of a wonderful meal.

We are open from 12pm, if you would like to make your visit to Southwold Pier super memorable by dining with us at The Boardwalk, make sure you pop in to speak to a member of the team when you first arrive. If we are busy, you can take a wander up the pier, visiting our shops and arcades, and we will give you a call as soon as the next table becomes available

Everything we serve is freshly made by talented, passionate chefs using seasonal local produce. Our menus change throughout the year to ensure variety and the best flavours.  We also offer a gluten free menu available at all times, including gluten free fish and chips.

At the Boardwalk, you can enjoy your food while watching the waves roll in, and we provide seating outside as well. There’s nothing quite like al fresco dining on the Pier during the summer!
