A charming restaurant just 200 metres from the beautiful Suffolk coast, The Lighthouse in Aldeburgh features in both the Michelin Guide and the Good Food Guide. Making the most of local produce, British classics are joined by Mediterranean flavours on the menu.

Favourites on The Lighthouse Restaurant menu include traditional beer-battered fish and chips and hearty steaks with hand-cut chips and a choice of sauce. Elsewhere on the menu, discover grilled lemon sole with fennel and pomegranate salsa, corn-fed chicken breast with sun-dried tomato and wild mushroom risotto, and gnocchi with gorgonzola and Mediterranean vegetables.

Finish with indulgent desserts like boozy banana pancake with toffee crunch ice cream, or treacle tart with lemon syrup. With large windows, wooden floors and rich yellow and terracotta walls, The Lighthouse is warm, relaxed and welcoming.

A rustic seaside restaurant, The Lighthouse in Suffolk blends fresh flavours with fine wines, local ales and an inviting atmosphere.

    Wonderful evening. Food, ambience and service all excellent. My favourite dish was the pan seared scallops with bacon, it was scrumptious! This was my first visit to Aldeburgh and The Lighthouse Restaurant, but won't be the last.

    We are regular visitors to The Lighthouse and were delighted to see the restaurant full on a Friday lunchtime. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and there were groups enjoying the Christmas Fayre and casual diners. A delightful experience as usual.

    The staff were warm and welcoming. The food was tasty and enjoyable, without being pretentious, and the prices were very reasonable inline with the quality. In particular the markup on a bottle of wine was far less extortionate than in many restaurants.

    Lovely meal and excellent service as ever - Sam and his team are marvellous.
