After another week of eating every night of our nearly-week-long stay in Aldeburgh, we are no longer astounded by the brilliant consistency of this establishment. We've been coming for 19 years to the Lighthouse and at least that to Aldeburgh. We treat the Lighthouse as our dining room - in easy reach of where we stay - and except when... More

We have been coming to and enjoying the food here for several years, taking a good 50" journey to get here from our home. The welcome is friendly, professional ..... And this time I was very impressed that the maître d' remembered my name! My mother in law, who doesn't really enjoy going out, has named this her very favourite... More

Visited this restaurant on a recent visit to Suffolk on a grey and drizzly Saturday afternoon We had the best fish and chips we have tasted. Thick pieces of fish with a tasty and thin layer of batter. Wonderful chips, crunchy on the outside and cooked to perfection within. Fish and chips how it should be! We also had a... More

We had a meal on our final night in Aldburgh following a friend's recommendation and boy were we happy! I am a lover of all seafood and the food on offer here was like my dreams come true. I enjoyed 2 large, fresh oysters, then a gorgeous dressed crab and a scallop and smoked salmon special. DELISH! The accompanying wine,... More

We went with the family to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We haven't been to the lighthouse for several years , we decided to book after reading A.A Gills review in the Sunday times a while back. We weren't disappointed , we were greeted very warmly on arrival and shown to our table. The restaurant had a warm relaxed feel to... More

We arrived five minutes before lunch ended but were treated courteously and not hurried. The fish and chips were excellent although our request for extra well done chips was not fully met. Service was both relaxed and professional but it would have been helpful to draw the specials to our attention. A good selection of wines by the glass as... More
