It’s worth checking which restaurants are open when since the C19 issues. And we’d strongly suggest booking well in advance.
The Lighthouse in Aldeburgh is lovely and has a wide range of good, well cooked food in a pleasant restaurant that really knows what it’s doing.
The Market Cafe in Aldeburgh is great if you want a good lunch. It gets busy, it’s no simple cafe, and you may need to book. It also has a shop serving excellent fresh fish, seafood, fish pate, fruit, salad and etc. It’s not cheap!
The Regatta in Aldeburgh is another really pleasant and often buzzing restaurant; perhaps not quite as relaxed as the Lighthouse; and with an emphasis on fish – but by no means exclusively so.
The restaurant at Darsham Nursery is a special treat. On the A12 North of Leiston towards Southwold. It received a five star review in the Independent making it busy and confirming it is very good indeed; adult and interesting food. We think this may have closed
The Ramsholt Arms is a beautiful pub on the River Deben: superb south facing view over the river; food and beer.
The Westleton Crown is a great country pub and restaurant: a 15 minute drive away, and worth it.
The Plough & Sail at Snape is a very able and pleasant pub. Food high quality indeed. Busy if there’s a concert at the Maltings. Occasionally has a lapse, but generally reliable.
The cinema and restaurant at Woodbridge on the quay is first class food and a lovely setting.
