Visited Regatta last week and was satisfied with the balance of choice, quality and price paid (given it is in Aldeburgh High Street). The home made bread was very nice but the sea bass fillet was a bit mingy and was almost certainly a farmed fish as I don't think fishermen are allowed to bring them in that small. I... More

i feel after reading all the great reviews that I am being a bit of a sour puss but feel a bit let down. Flavours of the food were good but were just lacking something. The halibut I was served was dry and over cooked and the salad consisted of a few leaves. If you are saying a salad with... More

This is a favourite of mine to visit whenever in Aldeburgh. The menu has a good selection of seafood options, the ambience is great as is the service. Never lets me down.

We visited the Regatta for our parent's 60th birthdays based on their website and recommendations from a friend, so we were disappointed to find that the food was distinctly average . Not great nor really awful just nothing to write home about . We had been offered 2 birthday plates for our parents who were each celebrating a birthday and... More

Four of us went here for an evening meal after a Sunday afternoon visit to the cinema. The welcome was real and friendly: the service throughout was excellent and the food was quite delicious and could not be faulted. We had some things off the menu and some off the specials board...the scallops in particular were praiseworthy as was the... More

A good variety of dishes were available on the menu & the specials board, with interesting flavour combinations. We visited on a midweek November evening but the atmosphere was convivial and friendly. Staff were attentive without being intrusive, and very obliging. The Malteser and fudge ice cream is a must for those with a sweet tooth! The chunky chips were... More

If you only have time to visit one restaurant in town, then this is the place! Went one lunchtime during half term. Chose from the £15 for two courses, £18 for three! Lovely food, friendly and knowledgable staff. Great kids menu too. Didn't have any wine as we were on our bikes - last time I did, I fell off... More

An unpretentious restaurant but featuring some adventurous dishes (I had a mixed special of ostrich, kangaroo and alpaca!). Food quality excellent, service cheerful and fast. Prices very reasonable.
