Restaurant description

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.

    Sam and Maxine and all the staff made us very welcome as is always the case. The food was up to the usual great standard and Guy the chef is to be congratulated on the way the food is so consistently good. This time we had the Blythburgh pork belly and can thoroughly recommend it. The atmosphere was good with a number of guests celebrating birthdays (including one of our party), the whole restaurant joined in with the Happy Birthday song which Sam led.

    Picture the scene - a wet and dull Wednesday evening in February at just after 6pm. You enter the restaurant and are immediately ensconced in a warm delightful restaurant, really buzzing with a great atmosphere, and greeted warmly by very attentive hosts. More surprisingly is that we had our dog with us, who was greeted just as warmly. These guys have had the business for 25 years and they absolutely know how to provide an amazing restaurant experience. The wine and special celebration beer, brewed locally, were perfect and the food just exceptional. Unusually we both had a desert, which did not disappoint. If you are anywhere close to Aldeburgh do have a meal here - you'll enter with a smile and leave with a grin, all for a very reasonable price too!

    Six of us visited the restaurant for my mother's 90th birthday lunch. We were all made to feel very welcome, particularly my mother which was obviously very important. All the staff really seemed to enjoy their jobs and were very helpful in giving advice re the menu. There was time to have a drink at the table before the meal and we were able to stay at the table for as long as we wanted. We all enjoyed the meals. I had the cod, great!
