Third time in Aldeburgh, third lunch at The Lighthouse. We’ve always really liked it here and once again, it didn’t disappoint. I had the fish soup - hearty, deeply flavoured and wonderfully warming on a freezing day; my partner had the scallops with bacon and samphire which were very well cooked and quickly consumed.
Mains of duck and liver & bacon were hearty, well seasoned and well eaten! Too full for dessert, but the house chocolates and coffee (coffee for me; chocs for the partner) were a lovely end to the meal.
What I really like about this restaurant is it’s warmth of welcome. The proprietor greeted us as returning guests (a nice touch given it had been a year!), and we saw he greeted his regulars as old and welcome friends.
Service was good on a very busy Sunday. Food came hot and freshly prepared. Staff were busy but completely ‘on it’.
The atmosphere is warm and buzzy. Next year we may break out of the lunch routine and do dinner! But we’ll certainly be back.
A big thanks to the team there.
