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.

    Everything was excellent and the staff helped to make it an enjoyable experience.
    The only disappointment was that a couple arrived with a large smelly Labrador to the table next to us and lay on the floor by our table. We were surprised that this lovely restaurant allowed dogs.

    A lovely restaurant for our group of 7 friends. Some of us shared Oysters to start. Plump and delicious and fresh. My main of roast cod was very good. We shared a couple of puddings which were excellent - perhaps the highlight of the meal.
    Friendly service in a busy place. We’ve been before and will definitely go again.
