The Seafood & Grill restaurant is a wonderful place to relax and soak up panoramic views along the beach, whatever the time of year, though if you are lucky enough to visit during summer, you can take full advantage of the sea-facing al fresco terrace. It has a relaxed ambience and restaurant staff are slick and friendly. Menus at the restaurant at The Brudenell Hotel are full of seasonal produce, sourced from local suppliers. Head chef James Barber is responsible for creating the appealing modern European dishes on offer; his specialty is good honest food done well, like salt beef hash with a fried egg and sweet potato fries, or his own version of fish and chips. The extensive wine list offers the discerning drinker plenty of choice, and good value for money.

Great Quality Fish

Came her for the first time for lunch with friends having just moved in locally. Was a bit surprised to be met by six male waiters standing behind the bar and waited a little while before one of them made the effort to find us a table. Service was a little slow, but we were not in a hurry. Plenty... read more

Drinks pricey but food lovely.... nothing is too much trouble. Found the menu had a bit too much emphasis on smoked food - smoked prawns, chicken, bacon......

We dropped in here for lunch on a cold, windy Easter Monday. The warmth of the welcome instantly made us forget how cold we were. The restaurant was high-class, without being ridiculously expensive. The slightly dry pitta bread with my partner's starter was quickly replaced without a quibble. The fish soup was excellent, as was the hake main course, which... More

We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. We recently lunched here with family on a busy, sunny Saturday and were struck by the welcome we received from all the charming and efficient staff who were, without exception, keen to make our visit enjoyable. The always attractive restaurant was very full but the attentive staff maintained a... More

Booked up for Mother's day for Sunday lunch knowing their huge range of fish dishes. Arrived and given a fantastic table by the window looking straight out to the beach and sea. For the special occasion they had a jazz saxophonist and pianist who played all my parents favourite Frank Sinatra numbers adding a great sense of spirit . The... More

A glorious day in Aldeburgh, and the terrace of The Brudenell looked very inviting. Brightly coloured chairs, glass walls to the terrace which act as a wind break - what better place for morning coffee? They gained an extra brownie point for the very helpful waiter, and another for offering a gluten-free cake (yes, I know, boring - but essential... More

We brought my elderly father here for lunch as as usual he ordered fish and chips (he always orders fish and chips). What arrived was quiet huge but it was fresh and perfectly cooked. The rest of us had lobster risotto, fish pie and grilled lemon sole. Followed by 4 equally good desserts. All were delicious. We have a top... More
