Where Norfolk and Suffolk meet, you will find some fantastic eateries, and we have listed our favourites which we think are well worth a visit.
View Point Café
This café is warm and friendly and supplies its guests with a choice of outdoor and indoor seating. They are famous for their all day breakfasts, fish and chips and ice-creams. The reason this café is so special is because of its beautiful views across the river, and whilst you are enjoying a spot of lunch you may see the huge cargo ships being loaded and unloaded at the port.
The Ramsholt Arms
This popular riverside pub is situated on the beautiful banks of the River Deben. In July 2015, The Ramsholt Arms was voted one of the top 20 places to dine alfresco in the UK by the Sunday Times. If you are looking for lunch with a view, there is no need to look any further. There is an abundance of fresh seafood, sharing platters and much more to enjoy.
Café Bencotto brings a taste of the Mediterranean to Suffolk, and with its sophisticated yet laid back interior, it is the perfect place to enjoy pasta and pizza. Enjoy the flavours of Greece, Spain, The Levant and North Africa and get a taste of their first-class service. Now serving breakfast, this café should definitely be on your list.
