We decided to have a day out in the hot weather and I had not been to this area. I checked the local reviews for this restaurant, and thought it would be a good choice. We did not book for lunch, service starts at 12.00pm and a set menu is available. It was already starting to fill up with family... More

The lighthouse is an old favourite and continues to delivery a good consistent experience. The fish is always the best choice and a wide variety is normally available. An affordable wine list and good service.

Fabulous food, lovely restaurant and attentive, friendly staff - what more could you ask for. The only downside for us was we could only get a table at the early time of 6:30pm but we'd heard sufficiently good feed back about this restaurant to go for it anyway and it didn't disappoint. Suggest you book as early as you can!

The two course lunch is excellent value. Unfortunately my fish and chips were not very good -undercooked fish with soggy batter and also undercooked chips. We were a party of six and other than mine, the food was fine. We'll give it another try soon.

A master class in how to run a business in the hospitality trade. Made most welcome, owners at regular intervals had a chat with us. All staff alert, friendly, efficient. Food superb and swiftly produced. Two menus to offer something for everyone to suit all pockets whether you "nip in" or go for the evening, all catered for happily. Been... More

Found this restaurant quite by chance and was a wonderful find. Food delicious and staff attentive and friendly even though it was incredibly busy. We didn't get there till 8.30 and it was packed but they managed to squeeze us in. People were still arriving close to 10.0 and the atmosphere was great!!

We enjoyed our dinner here - good service and atmosphere. We didn't think the food was brilliant but better than elsewhere in town.

Description
Sam and the team at The Lighthouse restaurant welcome every customer into a relaxed atmosphere which instantly makes you feel at home. With three different eating locations, downstairs, upstairs and the courtyard, The Lighthouse offers a 'Sleepy Suffolk' approach to eating out, with you dictating the pace of your evening.

The Lighthouse chefs work tirelessly to continue to produce mouth-watering dishes for the A la carte menus and, the lunch & pre-cinema menu. With the creations of the dishes, Head Chef Guy Welsh ensures that the ingredients for all his dishes are as local as possible, with much of the fish coming right off the beach in Aldeburgh, our duck coming from Norfolk based Gressinghams, Five Winds butchers in Melton for our juicy steaks and local salad leaves from Sue Allen in Thorpeness. To round off the perfect evening, The Lighthouse offers a wide selection of tempting wines and local Adnams beers to compliment all of our dishes.
