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.

    The Lighthouse offers a quality lunch menu with locally-sourced fish content and other fine options. Price was very reasonable considering its location in up-market Aldeburgh.

    Nice lively restaurant but not too noisy that you couldn’t have a decent conversation at your own table. Premises much larger inside than you think but still had a cosy atmosphere. Pleasantly and interestingly decorated . Good varied selection of dishes to suit all tastes. Staff friendly and welcoming. Time between courses was perfect and portion sizes just right. Very good value. We shared the Meze appetisers of hummus and taramasalata, then for starters I had the potted shrimps and my husband had the fish soup. Our mains were Roasted Guinea fowl and Loin of pork served with a selection of vegetables. No room for pud or coffee and the bill was £52. No alcohol included as we don’t drink but did share a large bottle of sparkling mineral water. We have been to Aldeburgh on numerous occasions and this was the first time we’ve been lucky enough to secure a booking as it’s a very popular restaurant so book well in advance .A nice touch was the owner ( well I think he was!)taking the time to come over to our table and ask if everything had been alright, had we enjoyed our meal, had we travelled far etc etc. Will certainly go back and would thoroughly recommend

    A fourth year at the Lighthouse to celebrate my wife’s birthday and once again a brilliant evening made special with a happy birthday chorus with the dessert and a complementary glass each of bubbly to finish. Wonderful atmosphere as usual and treated like regulars. The 3 courses ffor us both were very good but the steak was quite outstanding and we were pleased to be able to let the chef know personally. In addition the service on a very busy evening was excellent. Hopefully, we will be back for a fifth time next year.
