Description: The Seafood & Grill restaurant is a wonderful place to relax and soak up...
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.

Dropped in for a drink

A bit of class by the sea, we stopped as we strolled along the sea front for a bottle of wine. The afternoon ticked by, very pleasant surroundings, excellent service. It makes a nice change to have someone open a bottle and serve as if we were in a top class establishment in the city.

We had a family meal here as a treat but was disappointed at the variety and price of the lunchtime menu. Particularly, the childrens menu options were £8 - for a little portion i thought this was extortionate. The service was ok, not great and the food for the adults was adequate but way overpriced. Forget the location - The... More

Variable....... Which made us a little disheartened as we had heard good things. The starters were great; charcuterie, potted shrimps and crab. The mains were average - the special; skate wing was sadly over cooked. Its a meaty fish but still...... The desert of chocolate ganache with turkish delight was a delight so saved by the desert.

Having stayed here a few years a go we decided to take the family for lunch. It was a nice day so we had our meal outside. It was very busy but the meal was worth the wait. Food and drink was great and it all added up to a nice easy lunch with our family. Although it was busy... More

Second visit to the Brudenell yesterday for a celebration with friends and the experience was truly first class. Table was booked two weeks in advance and the requested window table gave a panoramic view of the sea. Ok, its not the Med but the seafood (crab and scallop starters, cod, crab and seafood tagine mains) was really excellent and couldn't... More

I notice another reviewer grumbled at portion size, but as we had looked round at what others were eating before we chose, we were both happy - my partner having a huge plateful of rich chicken roast, and I with a healthier option of fish with spinach and new potato which was perfectly adequate albeit not huge. Evidently it does... More

Visiting the Sea Food And Grill Restaurant to celebrate with friends their 40th wedding anniversary. Seat by the window overlooking the beach with the North Sea crashing onto the beach. Excellent locally sourced products, generous portions and polite attentive front of house. Our favourite Aldeburgh, will be visiting again as soon as time permits

We have lunched here several times ; the location is amazing and the look of the place is good . The food has always been good and well presented , although the portions have never been large .
