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.

    An early Valentines lunch on a Monday in this delightful restaurant with great food and friendly staff. As a vegan it's difficult to find a good restaurant but to be served with a specific vegan menu with three courses and several choices was such a treat. My husband (who is not vegan) also thoroughly enjoyed his meal. I had the best vegan pudding ever! We'll be back!

    A lovely meal, as usual. Sam and the Team were on good form. The Lighthouse is our favourite restaurant in Aldeburgh.

    Busy Saturday night. Excellent service. Sam always makes time for a friendly chat and share a joke.
    Food as always excellent, great choice.
    Our favourite place to eat!

    This is an excellent restaurant. The staff were lovely, friendly and helpful, the menu was interesting and varied, the food itself was tasty and substantial and the wine list good. We (unintentionally) arrived in time for the special time-limited offer (we didn’t know about it until we arrived) and four of us had eleven very enjoyable courses between us, with wine, for less than £90. The butternut squash soup was sumptuous, the curry received high praise and the sticky toffee pudding was great and even presented in an attractive way. Can’t speak highly enough of The Lighthouse.

    Friendly efficient service on a very busy evening. Warm ambiance. Good wine list. Very well executed dishes from a varied menu served in ample portions.

    For many years Lighthouse has been one of my favourite restaurants - fresh produce, simple menu with good selection of wines with great service in a 'family run' atmosphere (usually the preserve of the finest italian restaurants) managed under the watchful eye of Sam who, if ever I opened a restaurant I would either wish to nick or replicate. All the nestling within the charm of Aldeburgh

    Super meal as usual. Excellent apple and ginger sauce with pork loin.
