The boardwalk is about as close to the ocean as you can get, being set above the breakers of Southwold’s famous pier.

With fantastic views south over the town’s seafront and north to Covehithe, the Boardwalk is one of the liveliest places you can eat in Suffolk.

2. Steak Lobster & Co

Bringing fine dining to the Felixstowe waterfront, Steak Lobster & Co sticks to what it does best, focusing almost exclusively on beef and seafood.

The popular restaurant nearly closed last year due to difficulties hiring a chef, but new owners took it over and managed to reopen it.

3. Seafood and Grill at Hotel Brudenell
