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.

    Very nice evening, good food and attentive staff. We were concerned as we were going to the cinema and our food was some time arriving but when we pointed this out everything was moved along quickly. The early evening dinner menu before the cinema is very good value and I would definitely recommend it

    This was our first visit to your restaurant and what a pleasure it was. From the moment we walked through the door the atmosphere was very friendly and this continued throughout the evening. All staff where extremely friendly and professional. You were not rushed at any time and the food was superb
    We went to your restaurant on recommendation and we certainly were’nt disappointed it was a treat for my wife for her birthday and we both throughly enjoyed it
    Thank you very much

    Delightful grilled plaice for main course followed by the banana pancake.....Lovely post cinema meal. Prompt friendly service as always, even if we turned up on the wrong night!!!!

    Lovely lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Only one of us was drinking so they concocted a non-alcoholic celebratory ginger and elderflower drink for us. They were also very helpful about getting a wheelchair in, but sadly the toilets are completely inaccessible. Food highlights were the crab salad, pigeon breast starter, and grilled Dover sole.
