We went to this restaurant on New Years Day on Sunday and had the most beautiful meal. We went with our daughter and her family so there are two young children too as well as 4 adults. The menu is delightful and the food is gorgeous. Service is super. This is the 4th or 5th year that we have eaten... More

Stopped here for a well-earned coffee in the morning and liked the vibe enough to book a table for dinner for our final evening and we weren't disappointed. Plenty of room inside meant you're not banging elbows with people on the next table, which seems to be the thing in a lot of restaurants these days, decor, service and food... More

Very welcoming and knowledgable staff. The menu provides a great choice for a wide range of tastes without sacrificing quality. I'll have to go back to try some of the dishes I didn't choose on this visit!!

The food was well cooked but nothing out of the ordinary. The menu selections were perhaps a little unimaginative. All the staff very helpful.

So many eateries these days are pubs without the refinement of a restaurant, but they still charge restaurant prices. The Brasserie Bleue is a proper Restaurant. The staff are very welcoming. The surroundings are very comfortable. We had a very relaxed 3-course meal taking our time at over 2 hours. The upholstered chairs made this so much better than the... More

Hi Ray, thank you for taking the time to review the Brasserie. You are correct there are many places to eat out in this area, making it difficult to set us aside from the other establishments, however we feel a cosy atmosphere that comes across relaxed with some amazing food is essential and all at a reasonable cost is a...

We visited the White Lion for dinner last week. It was a cold and wet and windy evening and on arrival the team there were keen to help us dry off and warm up as if we were welcomed into their own home. We both had fish dishes, bream and plaice and I have to admit that they were both... More

The Brasserie Bleue menu specialises in French cuisine with classic flavour combinations that never fail to impress. The menu has a very French feel although there are aspects of other European and British cuisine available too. You can choose from both an a la carte and pre fix menu offering a wide choice of dishes and great value. The Gravadlax salmon... More

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.
