Orford is a small fishing village on the Suffolk Heritage Coast. It has a working harbour, and the seasonal fish and seafood landed by the fishing boats at Orford will be cooked & served in local pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area the following day – or the same day – including in the ‘Jolly Sailor’, just along from Orford Quay.
Orford boasts an excellent Fish Restaurant (in the village), to sample some of the fresh locally-caught fish for yourself. And ‘Pinneys’ sell pates and smoked fish from their own smoke-house for you to take home for supper.
On the hill at the far end of the village is a Norman castle to explore. Orford Castle is managed by English Heritage, and there is parking and a Visitors Centre and Gift Shop inside.
