As part of the White Lion Hotel were very happy with both the food and service during our stay. Good choices and no repetition during our 3 days.

Really tasty food with lots of local produce. Fixed price menu is particularly good value. We tend to eat earlier in the evening which is less crowded. There's plenty of space around the tables unlike some other Aldeburgh restaurants where you can feel crammed in....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.
