About White Lion
Join us at our restaurant at the White Lion Hotel in the heart of Aldeburgh.
Our food has been inspired by a desire to return to simple, 'back to basics' food and impeccable service, offering freshly prepared dishes in contemporary surroundings.
The restaurant menu includes the likes of fresh fish bought from Dean's Fish 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 featured on the menu, has been 'hand picked' to guarantee an abundance of flavours.
We believe that eating out should be a fun experience, shared with family, friends and your canine companians. That's why not only can we offer children their own menu, also if you wish for something for you doggy friend we are happy to cook them a meaty meal.
Please note that your doggy friends are only able to join you at table in either our bar or lounge areas
Very friendly staff and the food was served promptly and the group feedback was that it was all very nice.
Great food and service at the White Lion. We had a party of 8 and we had a wonderful evening.
The White LIon gave us a great break. Warm and comfortable and excellent restaurant :)
The room was very comfortable but the shower was poor. We enjoyed are stay very much The food was excellent with service to match.
Always visit when in Aldeburgh, never fails to deliver.
We usually stay at The Swan in Southwold but decided on coming to Aldeburgh. It was an inspired decision and we will return despite it being a 230 mile journey!
Service was slow especially as there were not many diners and the finished plates were left on the table far to long.
Great meal as part of stay.
The food was excellent and the atmosphere very convivial. Staff were all very helpful polite and good at their job.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The 2 courses that we had on the lunch menu were lovely and good value for money.
The restaurant was quite quiet so lacked atmosphere Meal was very well presented and service was good
Very good food. Lovely atmosphere and pleasant staff.
Love eating here! Good food, nice surroundings, pleasant staff! What more do you need! ❤️
Lovely setting, the lounge was very comfortable. Arrived early for afternoon tea (mums birthday treat) so found a table and got a drink from the bar. Just after 3pm the afternoon tea arrived with no allergy advice taken before it arrived and no advice on what was presented to us. Not once did someone approach us to see if everything was ok or if we needed any refills on the drinks. We then went to pay the bill, we again was not asked if everything was ok (could understand if the venue was extremely busy) but apart from us (a table of 3) and a table of 4 in the restaurant, there was no one else). I would come back again to give the venue benefit of the doubt as i enjoyed everything on the afternoon tea. Maybe some consideration to members of staff to check with paying customers if they are happy with everything and to at least ask before food is put down about any allergies people may have (gluten free/shell fish etc).
Great food, great service, dog friendly! Also great checking of Gluten Free food by the waitress. This was our second booking and we will be back. Thanks 😊
Was very happy with our last visit. The waiting staff were excellent and the food was of the same high standard.
The service was very good and the only reason I gave four instead of five was due to them being very busy and the staff weren't able to get the bill etc as quickly as we would have liked but an all round improvement on our last visit. Thank you to all at The White Lion.
An enjoyable meal
I was a little bit disappointed. The first room we were allocated was far from ok and the afternoon tea wasn’t great and tbh nor was dinner. The staff however were great. Could be better
Very nice meal for four house white was excellent staff very attentive. Our party included a wheelchair user who was catered for in all departments including parking access comfort and WC arrangements. A lovely meal great experiance.
Good quality food served with a smile.
Food was lovely! Service could have been better! Launguage barrier was difficult with staff not speaking English. Was sat at the wrong table, got wrong coffee because staff didn’t understand English!
