The Copper Smoke House in Oulton Broad does great food, and The Jolly Sailors in Pakefield is great for live music every Sunday.

The Walnut Tree in Thwaite is a great little vegetarian/vegan restaurant; fantastic hearty food in a lovely building, you don't even notice that there isn't any meat; there's plenty of Tripadvisor reviews from non-vegetarians who agree. 
I love Dunwich Heath for a beach walk. It's stunning, even on a grey day.

My favourite seafood and steak restaurant is The Third Crossing, also I love The Jolly Sailors on a Sunday afternoon for live music by the sea.
If you are after something different a lovely beach ride from Pakefield Riding School.

The Harbour Inn in Southwold has a stunning location right on the river, you can take a walk along the river and pick up locally caught fresh seafood, They do really great fish & chips and have great selection of beers.

Nicholas Everitt Park because of its beautiful location next to the Broads, great cafes and lots for children to do!

Sgt Peppers is my favourite restaurant.

My favourite place to go depends on who is going: Africa Alive always keeps the kids amused!
Without the kids, paddling the Broads at Oulton Broad is my favourite place to be, as I can get to places boats can’t go and very few people too.

My favourite restaurant in Suffolk is Iconic.
I don't have a particular favourite place to go to, however I do love packing up a picnic and admiring the Suffolk views, mainly Framlingham way! Or, I like to take my two young nephews down the beach for chips, ice cream & doughnuts in either Lowestoft, Felixstowe or Southwold.
