Lovely food and wine

We had a lovely dinner, a mix of fish, shell fish and meat, all beautifully cooked. But the main excitement of the meal was a wine from Essex! Unexpected but delicious and very local. all first rate.

Visited The Regatta with a group of eight friends for dinner. We all had three courses, the crayfish and basil salad starter was delicious as was the sea bass with chorizo risotto, the main course came with a small side salad which I personally found a bit strange - I ate it nonetheless! All finished off nicely with a portion... More

All the staff were on the ball and appeared to be enjoying meeting and greeting the customers. The food was varried and good, if you like sea food then all the better, that said one of our party had a steak which he thoroughly enjoyed.

First off, the staff remembered us from our first visit and we were met with a "Welcome back." Always a good sign! Once again, the food was amazing! The Lunch menu was excellent value, one of our friends had the Fish and Chips, and raved about it all the way home! The piri-piri chicken was perfection on a plate. Dessert... More

We almost missed out on visiting this wonderful restaurant. To be completely honest, its outer appearance belies the wonderful treats within. We hadn't booked but were greeted in a friendly and welcoming manner, shown to a good table and the service overall continued to be helpful and efficient. Everything that can be said about the food has already been said:... More

We booked this for a quiet meal for 2 and were very pleased with our choice, the menu is not huge, but it didn't need to be as it was very interesting. We would have liked to have seen a little more variety on the menu e.g. only beef, chicken, fish or veggie as the starters came from the same... More

We came in today on a bank holiday, no booking on a whim as we walked past. I really appreciated how you strived to accommodate my 17 month old, making sure he had everything for dinner and asking if he needed anything else, I've been to restaurants where he has been completely ignored as if he had no business being...

Coming to this restaurant was all about the reviews it had received and we were lucky to get a table for lunch on a Sunday. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome by the team of young women. The food was just great from the tempura prawns, rock oysters, teriyaki scallops with noodles and the best...

We always come here when we are in Aldeburgh and are never disappointed. This time we were just two and were eating mid week, so hadn't booked. But at weekends, holidays or if you are a big group you must book ahead. We both love fish and chose from the specials board. Portions are very generous so go hungry! Lovely... More
