Description: Our new Bar and Brasserie has been inspired by a modern desire to return to simple, 'back to basics' food, offering freshly prepared dishes, contemporary, informal surroundings and impeccable service. We hope the whole family will enjoy dining with us. From fresh fish bought from Dean's Shed, situated on the beach opposite the White Lion, to smoked kippers sourced from Pinney's of Orford, every ingredient used in the exciting dishes which feature on the new menu, has been 'hand picked' to guarantee an abundance of flavours - Bon Appétit.

My husband and I ate here for dinner on a Friday night, then the next night after an appalling dinner elsewhere, returned to the Lion Bar and Brasserie for dessert. The food we had was excellent! We did receive the wrong starter, but after asked about it, we were offered the correct one straight away as replacement. I had some... More

I, along with my husband were recently treated to lunch at the White Lion in Aldeburgh in Suffolk. We found the staff very helpful and was given a table by the window. I had a starter of smoked mackeral pate and a main course of sea bream, both of which were delicious. I noticed from a leaflet on the table... More

Living in Suffolk you gradually get to know all the best places to eat. One of my favourites is the White Lion Hotel in the seaside town of Aldeburgh. Events range from ladies lunches, light bites & themed evenings such as Bastille night, all of which offer excellent value for money. Today, I came with a group of friends &... More

Lovely staff. Pleasant ambiance with great artwork. Interesting menu. Most delicious plump River Deben mussels. Fixed price option was disappointing.

The barmaid told him that he could sit at a table that they had near the bar but then once seated we were moved by the waitress and was told that the table... More
