We've had a Tea or Coffee here a number of times and found it OK. Never seen anything to temp us into having food. I would expect with the Adnams name behind them there would be something a little special. IT'S OK

We visited the Adnams café today with our cockapoo and we were made very welcome. Dogs are also welcome in the shop where they sell stylish Adnams branded dog bowls! Make sure you try the delicious Ghost Ship rarebit made with th3 Adnams beer of the same name.

Worthwhile addition to a Southwold trip - both the shop and the cafe. Cafe staff are really nice - for example they made sure that the piece of carrot cake we selected was the best they had. And a real plus - the Adnams customer car park is within view of the cafe.

Attached to the Brewery shop this cafe is really handy, but a bit cold in winter! Dog friendly is a real bonus. Menu limited but all wholesome, good coffee too

I've always wanted to have breakfast at Adnams, so for a treat whilst staying nearby for Christmas this year, we did. It's not cheap, considering what it is, but asides from the bacon (which was way too overdone), it's very, very good. I wouldn't make a regular habit of it but as a one-off, it's something else ticked off the... More

We always visit during our annual stay and the food in the restaurant remains interesting and tasty. Always enjoy the opportunity to try before we buy the beverages on offer. Warm welcome and environment.

I have to say that we'd ignored the Kitchen cafe for some time - simply choosing to browse the Cellar and invariably coming away with a bottle (or two) of Adnams excellent beer or spirits. However, having been tempted into the cafe following a brewery tour, we were pleasantly surprised with the range and quality of food. Sitting outside to... More

The Menu is vast and very appetising. So much to choose from that I ended up taking away goodies too. The Soup is generous and delicious and the mince pies are the best I have ever tasted. The staff are always pleasant and service was prompt and polite. Unique seating areas that give you privacy as well as a memorable... More

Popped in for a light lunch on the coldest day of the year and glad we did, lovely local grub washed down with gallons of tea. The staff were friendly, helpful and happy to chat despite it being busy, we sat in a large copper still and people watched. Dog friendly is always a win for me and the shop... More
