A contemporary restaurant in the heart of Southwold, we are a small independently run establishment serving a varied selection of food at Lunch and Dinner using the best, locally sourced meat, fish and produce with a wide range of wines and spirits to complement. Being on the coast, we naturally offer fresh fish dishes as well as Dressed Cromer Crab when available, our Tempura Prawn starter is always a hit too. We also offer meat dishes, our Pork Belly is very popular, and a vegetarian option is always available. We also have a choice of 80+ gins plus local Adnams & St Peters bottled ales, and draught Peroni to accompany your meal. Our 3 quirky beach hut pods in our outside space offer additional dining to our main restaurant, where diners can enjoy their own little private pod. Dogs are welcome in these pods too, and they are popular with families. We serve delicious Blue Mountain blend Coffees and snacks in the mornings as well as cooked breakfast.

    Coasters is an absolute gem of a restaurant — beautiful food, fantastic wine, a wonderfully warm welcome and no pretensions — just perfect.

    We discovered Coasters when we stayed in Southwold in February. We enjoyed our meal so much we returned two days later. We are staying in Kessingland and Aldeburgh this time, but we made a special visit to Southwold especially to come to Coasters. Hope to see you again x

    This was our second visit in a week, and was just as great as the first. Lovely welcoming staff, superb food and great cosy vibe in the little beach hut, we sat in the main restaurant last visit. The lady in front of house was very smiley, as was the waitress. Would thoroughly recommend,and will visit again.

    Food was great and good value. Starter and mains were served too quickly. Meal was finished in 50 minutes which felt far too soon. We had only just finished our prosecco when meal finished. We would have had extra wine

    Interesting and varied menu beautifully cooked and well presented. As someone with a gluten intolerance I was very impressed with their ability to make a few tweaks to the menu to accommodate my needs and give more choices than I usually have when eating out. Staff were friendly and helpful and the service was excellent. Very good value. Definitely recommend.

    Was a bit of a last minute booking but was really glad we did. The food was amazing, staff were fantastic and great value as well. We booked one of the external dining pods which we would totally recommend. Great idea and added so the overall experience. Will definitely being returning when we next visit Southwold.
