    It's three years now since our first visit to Aldeburgh and the Lighthouse Restaurant and Sam, Maxine and all the Staff seem to go from strength to strength. On this occasion we dined at the restaurant on three evenings 18th/20th and 22nd February. We would recommend booking as the restaurant is nearly always full although i know that Sam will go the extra mile to try and accommodate any passers-by, but this is not always possible or practical. What we love about the Lighthouse is the way in which Sam makes every diner feel special. There is always a great welcome as soon as you step through the door and attention paid to your every need. It's your own fault if you want something and don't get it. You just have to ask, politely, of course. Our food on all three nights was delicious. The standard menu Fish and Chips is always a delight. I always save this for my last evening. In between i enjoyed a fabulous piece of Blythburgh Belly Pork, superb taste and sauce and another evening a whole local pheasant. Very tasty. Mags, my wife, had Cod from the Specials board, Seabass and Chicken. All first class. For a Starter look no further than the potted shrimps. Wonderful buttery experience without the pot! Try them. I can highly recommend the French House White which i think we have been having ever since we started going to the Lighthouse. It is very light and easy on the palate. All in all a lovely local restaurant with lots of character and charm and above all a vibrant atmosphere and friendly, helpful staff. A big thank you to Sam and his team for three more lovely dining experiences. See you next visit.

    Somewhere you can go and guarantee it's always going to be good is a valuable asset to have tucked away, Sam and his staff always remember you and treat you like a regular even if you only go there occasionaly, the food and service are excellent and the ambience is warm and friendly. My wife had confit of duck with lentels which she loved and I just fancied fish and chips, and the hake and home made chips were perfect. Good priced good quality house wine. great little place, no wonder it's always full.

    I thought it was 18 months since we'd visited but in fact our last meal here was in September 2017. Sam still greeted us like regulars, what a great friendly host he is without being over the top. It makes you feel very special to be remembered! Well worth the drive up from Ipswich where we were staying for the weekend, faultless food, great atmosphere and the set menu on Sunday lunchtime is very good value indeed. We were a 2pm booking but still weren't the last to leave and didn't feel rushed at all. I can't think of anywhere I'd rather go for Sunday lunch and just wish it wasn't so far to come from Cambridge where we live. Thank you Sam, Alex and team, and we'll try not to leave it so long before we visit again!!

    From the moment you walk through the door you're greeted as though you're family. The smells emanating from the kitchen are a delight to set your taste buds tingling. Whether you sit on the first floor or ground floor (alas the courtyard garden is obviously closed in February!!!), you will not be disappointed. The menu is simple but the food is stunning. Definitely worth a visit...........time and time again.

    My friend and I stayed in Aldeburgh for a couple of days and dined here on both nights - we were made so welcome by Sam and his team and the food was excellent. We wish that we lived near enough to make The Lighthouse our regular haunt and will certainly return.

    My last review was excellent, but our recent visit was just not so good (8 visits to Aldeburgh = 8 visits to The Lighthouse) Great welcome and lovely ambience. Chose the Primitivo to go with our food, which was a very good and reasonably price bottle of wine. Fish sour - excellent Salt and Pepper Squid = 3.5 rings of squid on some salad with a bottled (it appeared) chilli sauce = £7.50. Tasted good, but where was the rest Venison bourguignon was good but tiny and served in a soup bowl with some rocket, accompanied by some pasta in a half size soup bowl = £14 Sirloin steak - cooked really well, came with the usual salad and 9 chips By this stage we were still hungry and decided to, unusually, order a dessert - this was amazing - Banana Pancakes and Ice Cream to die for We love this restaurant, and the food was good but the portions were just too small

    I went to this restaurant with a visiting friend on 2nd Feb 2020 and it did not disappoint. We were welcomed by Sam with great enthusiasm and friendly chatter. The food was so incredibly tasty - both my friend and I are gluten free and so to have a wide range of choice was enlightening. Staff were knowledgeable, helpful and attentive. Thank you to Sam and your team - I look forward to returning very soon.

    Very welcoming and relaxed service. I particularly enjoyed the grilled halloumi starter. I also received a rendition of happy birthday and a candle in my dessert.

    I can't remember when I last reviewed the Lighthouse but it was some time ago so I thought it about time I shared how pleasing it is to report that, although the menu has changed (as one would expect) and, inevitably, some of the staff, it's such a relief to find the same warm, friendly welcome, the same great atmosphere and the same very high standard of food, wine and service. I hope it remains ever thus and am looking forward to our next visit.

    Only went here for coffee but having seen the menu and how attractive the restaurant looked I will certainly be returning for a meal next time I am in the area. Staff were very pleasant and everywhere looked fresh and cared for.

    We have eaten at The Lighthouse many times and have never been disappointed. We decided to treat ourselves to the Christmas menu with friends and had a great evening. The food is always lovely and reasonably priced. Sam is a great host and makes everyone feel welcome.

    We visited the restaurant on the recommendation of the owner of the holiday cottage we were staying in and were not disappointed. The staff and the owner were very welcoming and could not do enough to make sure we enjoyed our lunch. We were a party of five plus our well behaved Labrador Otto. The food was excellent and the whole restaurant had a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere. Having left and driving home we realised that my son has left his scarf. After driving home the restaurant phoned to say they had found the scarf and wanted our address so that they could post it to us. We live 100 miles away and they would not accept any money to pay for the postage. A wonderful gesture and it makes you think how many other restaurants would have taken the trouble to do that

    Ate here twice last week whilst we were staying in the house next door for Christmas. The food was absolutely delicious ~ especially the steak. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. Will definitely visit again next time we’re in Aldeburgh. Thank you so much for making us so welcome. Happy New Year To You All 🥂🍾🎊🥳
