Have visited here many times and is a favourite. Excellent food and superb value for money. Lovely atmosphere, prompt personal reply to an online booking request. But no "front of house" person or "manager" as use to be. This means the very pleasant and hardworking waitresses had to do everything, meaning, sitting looking at dirty main course plates for 30...

My husband and I were so looking forward to our visit to the Lighthouse on our holiday after a fantastic experience there last year. We were so let down and disappointed. My husband had a fish soup starter which he found very disappointing, he was expecting a soup with pieces of fish in it not a smooth soup which he... More

I thought I would just add another 5 star rating, echoing all the previous positive comments!! I have eaten here a couple of times when visiting Aldeburgh, the last occasion being this weekend with 6 friends. The Lighthouse is fantastic,the staff are really great, they serve a varied and interesting menu with a superb wine list. If I have to... More

I can only concur with all the excellent reviews of this charming,friendly restaurant. The only thing new to add is what incredible value for money! This is top class, fresh food at a very reasonable price.If there is better to be had in this area I would like to know about it.

Four of us went to The Lighthouse. The meal was terrific. I had crispy (really crispy) duck salad and a fabulous bouillabaisse. The service was terrific: efficient and courteous. The only slight problem was that it was a bit noisy; this is a consequence of how popular it was. Small price to pay though.

Met friends today who we haven't see for a year at The Lighthouse in Aldeburgh. The rain was beating down outside but inside the restaurant was busy, congenial atmosphere, really good food, waiters very attentive. Altogether, a very good experience shared by us all and although the restaurant closed at 2.30 we sat there enjoying ourselves until 4.30pm. Thanks

Been here so many times when we are in the area and it never fails to please. Eaten at lots of other places but they never provide the same quality of food, high level of service, at such good value. Will just miss not going back on a regular basis as the distance from home, unless we are on holiday,... More

I was taken last night for a truely wonderful dinner on my birthday. Had heard and read many good things about The Lighthouse so we were very much looking forward to eating there. From the genuine warmth and friendliness of Sam the manager and his relaxed yet attentive staff, to the deliciously simple clean flavours of the dishes we had,... More

Went last night for a family 40th birthday celebration. Selected a smoked mackerel starter from their daily specials board, and the corn fed chicken breast for main course. The meal was tremendous, superbly cooked with wonderful flavours. We will be back.
