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 Bib Gourmand-winning 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.

    Menu, food and service all excellent - especially the liver & bacon!

  • ((((( 17 June 2018 by Ann from Inverness

    At 19:15 on a Thursday in early June the place was already buzzing and fully booked. Our table was upstairs and just across the landing from the kitchen. Our server was most helpful, very switched-on and incredibly busy whilst still making time to smile and attend to the little details that make such a difference. Our choices were difficult to make because it was all so interesting and we wanted to try all of it! Our food was superb - how do kitchen staff produce such wonders in such a hot and pressured environment? The best meal of our two week stay in Suffolk. Well done everyone.

    We have been to The Lighthouse on a few occasions and the food is always delicious. Sam, the proprietor is a very good host and we always receive a warm and friendly welcome. On this occasion we took friends and it was their first visit but they enjoyed themselves immensely.

    Another excellent meal at our &avourite Restaurant In Aldeburgh. Lovely friendly welcome and service from Sam and his team, food consistently high quality - especially the fish.

    Sam is amazing. He has superb interpersonal skills which make everyone feel special. He copes with the relentless pressure of running a restaurant which deserves accolades and is always busy. When in Aldeburgh we do not even bother to look elsewhere because it is so good. Excellent food, excellent service and fun.
    I just worry that he and his wife will burn themselves out. 5 days holiday in the past year do not seem enough to recharge batteries.
    Top, fine dining restaurants could learn lessons from Sam. Sam and his wife and excellent team deserve huge praise.
