We went to the Engineers (lovely, friendly pub)for a pre dinner drink and then to Seahawk for the first time. The service was very good and the food was very well presented and cooked. The only mild complaint I have is that the Haddock was the tail end and consequently had no nice big flakes, but it was still tasty... More

Had a fish and chip lunch in their restaurant area. Food was a good as I have eaten anywhere, fish and chips freshly cooked, crisp and golden. The restaurant was spotlessly clean and the the waiting staff were well turned out and attentive. Recommended!

Have been using Seahawks for a few weeks now on a Friday as they are the only chip shop in Leiston that sell rock eel. Found the medium sized fish very small (they don't do a large rock eel, only small or medium) so I imagine the small must be a fish finger sized portion. Went there this Friday and... More

When on the east coast we normally visit another well known fish and chip shop just down the coast in Aldeburgh, however faced with the annual carnival we travelled to Leiston and we're not dissapointed. Freshly fried fish, great chips and well presented. Keep it up and give the other local chip shops the competition deserve!

We have eaten here twice during our two week holiday. The food is very good, well cooked and well presented, along with very courteous staff who are a credit to the business. A very pleasant venue. Thank you.
