So, you're in Norfolk and not sure where to eat in Great Yarmouth. Well, you've come to the right place. We've done the research (and we're absolutely pogged from it) and found the best restaurants in Great Yarmouth.

Without further a-do, let's get stuck in.

1. The Kings Arms Fleggburgh

Keen on using locally sourced ingredients, this Great Yarmouth restaurant uses only the best to create their gastro-pub style dishes. Oh, and all the herbs used come from their very own garden. It’s definitely worth stopping by this delightful restaurant for a celebratory or occasion meal – it's one of our favourites.

2. The Shed Tapas Bar

The atmosphere at The Shed really makes the experience – as well as the incredible tapas dishes, of course. Based on the seafront at Gorleston-on-Sea, this restaurant is the perfect stopping point for any day out in Great Yarmouth.

3. The Quayside Plaza

This is one of the best restaurants in Great Yarmouth if you’re looking for Mediterranean and Portuguese cuisine. The restaurant is run by a couple who have lived in the area since 1999 and really pour their hearts and souls into this epic dining spot.

4. Darling Darlings Cat Lounge

Not your typical place to eat out in Great Yarmouth, this cat café is the perfect spot for an afternoon coffee and cake (one of our favourite pastimes). The café itself is done up in a retro-style and makes for quirky stop along the Norfolk coast.

5. Chico’s Restaurant

Known locally for selling super fresh and delicious seafood as well as authentic Greek cuisine, Chico’s Restaurant is one of the best spots for eating out in Great Yarmouth. We reckon this spot is perfect for a quick dinner with friends or family – and it’s perfect for those group dinners where everyone likes something a little different.

6. The Smokehouse

In the mood for some straight-up American comfort food? Look no further than this southern-style diner. Serving up home-smoked meats, burgers and their very own Smokehouse lager, we really can’t fault this restaurant. There’s a plentiful menu – that has plenty of homemade vegan options too. Oh, and there’s a lovely little smoke yard too for dining (and drinking) outside.

7. Filby Bridge Restaurant at Filby Broad

Based a little outside of Great Yarmouth (about a 15-minute drive away), the Filby Bridge Restaurant is a great modern English restaurant to stop by for dinner. Opening in 1983, this quaint dining spot is family-run and offers up some delicious fresh seafood alongside their a la carte menu.

8. Pamela’s Restaurant

Wondering where to eat in Great Yarmouth for a fine dining meal? Look no further than Pamela’s Restaurant – serving up contemporary and unique dishes with excellent flavour, it’s the best of the bunch. Oh, and merely looking at the food is half the fun here – each dish looks like something you’d see in MasterChef.

9. The Terrace

Based at The Imperial Hotel, this unique venue is a great spot for dinner in Great Yarmouth. Enjoy the stunning views of the sea from the restaurant as you dine on one of those balmy summer nights – but don’t fret, there’s a retractable roof just in case typical English whether strikes.

10. Bombay Nite

Based in the centre of town, this family-run Indian restaurant is always popular with locals. And with its extensive menu, it’s not hard to see why it’s so popular. We reckon this one is perfect for intimate dinners as well as group affairs – but they also offer takeaways which are simply to die for.
