This is a must destination if you are coming to the area. The grilled lobster was heavenly. The potted crab and grilled prawn an absolute treat. Would highly recommend

Just stopped here for a light lunch, my husband had the 12 oysters and I had the smoked fish pate - both delicious and the other food being served looked good too - would definitely return for a meal next time we come to Orford.

Dinner for five people. Fish was delicious. Nothing fancy about this restaurant - the cooking speaks for itself. Great staff. Highly recommend Butley. Skate, fish pie, moules, cod in a herb crust, all wonderful.

If you live your seafood, this is the place to be! Not a fish and chips shop, a proper fish restaurant with fresh oysters, lobster and dressed crab. My idea of heaven
