Restaurant, Take-away & Fishmonger

Sole Bay Fish Company was born when we started to sell our daily catch from our small hut in the harbour back in 2001. We now have a dog friendly restaurant, fish mongers and take away from this water-side location. We look forward to seeing you at the Sole Bay Fish Company!


Southwold's iconic harbour-side restaurant. Serving your favourites; fish and chips, beer battered and fresh oysters, fish platters, chargrilled garlic lobsters and crevettes and more!

All our fish is caught locally using our own boats; Our Caroll II and Suzie "P". We have a fully stocked bar with a variety of wines, spirits and soft drinks.

For more information please check out our menu below or click on the book now button to make a reservation!



We now have a take away service available at our harbour side restaurant, so that you can take your favourite picks from the restaurant menu away with you.
We have a wider range of options here than in our sister shop in town so that you can take more than fish and chips to the beach. We create fish platters, oysters, garlic butter lobster, grilled crevettes and more! 
To see the full range of options available please click on our take away menu below.



​Our fresh fish counter is stocked daily with a variety of the finest local catch of cod, plaice, lemon sole, dover sole, green & red mullet, gurnards, mackerel, herring, sardines, skate, rock, turbot, brill, and when in season we also have Brancaster mussels, samphire, smoked kippers and undyed haddock.
Our fishmongers prepare the fish to your requirements and can pack it on ice if you are travelling. We also take pre-orders.

On the other side of our counter we have ready-to-eat shellfish, crabs, shell on prawns, smoked kipper fillets, mackerel, sprats, anchovies, crayfish, Mersea rock oysters, gravalax & lobsters. Perfect for snacks when out on a walk or to take on a picnic! Our shellfish platters can be taken away too.


"Fantastic British coastal fresh fish bar and resturant. We had a very luxurious Prosecco and oysters, chargrilled Crevettes finished off with hot old fish and chips. Super tasty, fresh fresh chips and flavourful fish!"
