Join the queue. It's worth it. Cod was v good crunchy chips and the tomato ketchup was excellent.The place is so clean it's gleaming. We sat on the beach having our supper. Great.

In all honesty I don't know
How does the upper deck corkage system work? Are glasses provided?

Hi this is Vicky , OK , the way the corkage works is £3.00 per table for a bottle of wine & 50 p per bottle of beer! How's that ?! The only BYO ( bring your own ) in Aldeburgh! Enjoy. X
