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.

    Excellent lunch as usual for our family including two fussy teenagers. It’s always a treat when we visit Aldebufgh. What’s more, The Lighthouse is dog friendly - other restaurants please note! Highly recommended.

    Lovely restaurant, sat upstairs and really nice room, staff helpful and friendly and the food was excellent. Small menu but everything done very well and at no extra cost compared to other restaurants of lesser quality. Would definitely go back and would highly recommend.

    Very nice local restaurant
    Great atmosphere
    Very good value pre-cinema menu
    Some dishes are very well done e,g. the fish and chips
    Others are not so good e.g. prawn cocktail
    Cooking could be more consistent
    Wine list is good

    Great ambiance and very good service. Warm welcome from the Manager who also gave us a glass of wine at the end of the evening. The food was really good. Sea bass was excellent and the steak superb. We will definitely be returning.
