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

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.

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).

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.

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!
