The menu is extensive and offers a wide choice with meat as well as fish. I chose crispy hens egg to start and my wife Eggs Drumkilbo which apart from being... read more

Fine location, sea views and décor. Based on another review we started with the mackerel pate. Little taste and the crostini was simply hard, not crisp. Good lobster, but my wife's cod was ordinary.For a seafood grill was surprised the waitress has no idea the lobster needed 'tools.' Poor coffee. Whilst the location is fine the parking is a problem.... More

The Brudenell hotel is probably the oldest hotel in Aldeburgh but it has been tastefully and comprehensively refurbished, this is reflected in the restaurant which is modern and comfortable with terrific sea views. The hotel is next to the beach and parking is a problem - you can park outside the hotel but there is no where to turn so... More

Can't beat the location , right by the seashore. 8 of us there for lunch. Service was good, staff friendly but I wish restaurants who charge as much as this would train the serving staff to remember who ordered what. It's pretty poor having to go through the "Who ordered the beef? etc" routine. Seven out of the eight meals... More
