A Great Yarmouth visit is good for the sole

A mile or so from the track, on the North Quay, lives a fish restaurant, a veritable jewel in East Anglia’s gourmet crown, and one that at least partly accounts for the race-day tactics of trainers who bring their horses from Newmarket, 70-odd miles to the west.

Ironically, as its surroundings suffer from such dubious delusions of grandeur, this excellent eating-house has the most modest of names being called, simply, The Seafood Restaurant. Lobster, scallops, Dover sole, turbot, moules, you name it, they are all there, served thoughtfully by Chris and Miriam Kikis, the proprietors, to an appreciative crowd that grows markedly when the races are on.

Timing is, though, all-important. The last thing in the world you want is to be half way through your scallops in a lobster sauce (my nap selection), all being washed down by the decent, but inexpensive house white, when your runner needs saddling for the 2.00. Imagine the unnecessary indigestion.
