Welcome to our seaside restaurant

It's a pleasure to see you

Still going strong for near 20 years, The Lighthouse is a real boon to Aldeburgh locals, culture ventures and holidaymakers alike.

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 Á 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.
