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.

We went here on the Friday night before aldeburgh carnival, we thought it might be really busy and maybe a slow service but it was such a good evening! This is the first time I have been here for food and it definitely won't be the last. We booked our table online for 8:15 and had been given our starter... More

Went to the White Lion for my birthday with family. Very welcoming, excellent service. The children were welcome and well catered for. The food and wine were all excellent, very fresh ingredients cooked beautifully. The best bit, though, was that the chef had made the best chocolate cake I've ever tasted for a birthday cake. It was superb!! Altogether I... More

Where to have a top quality, good value lunch in Aldeburgh Suffolk? The bar & brasserie at the White Lion is a must. Tempura prawns, roasted plaice and creme brulee, with a nice Cote de Rhone. What more could you want? The five of us had a wonderful birthday lunch, great service and a wonderful day. Definitely a return visit... More

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
