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

Sandwiches were utterly delicious and the fresh warm scones superb - slightly disappointed that the eclairs weren’t chocolate and did think the strawberry muffins would have been better if they were blueberry or chocolate flavour or a lemon drizzle cake instead- I personally thought there was too much strawberry overall for my taste( too sickly sweet) though I appreciate that it was a themed strawberry cream tea! Otherwise it was fabulous!

We had an enjoyable evening celebrating my parents 54th Wedding Anniversary. The staff were lovely and attentive and made the occasion extra special by decorating the table and arranging a special anniversary plate after our meal. The atmosphere was great and we had good food so all in all a fabulous celebration. Thank You All!

Very fresh food, the seabass was very tasty with nicely seasoned new potatoes. The service was very good too and we had a window table which we requested.

We booked for the set lunch, as advertised on the website, to be told on arrival that it was no longer on offer. However, the waitress gave us a discount. A shame that the website is not being properly maintained.

My children and I have been visiting the area regularly for the past 3 years and the girls always insist on enjoying a meal here. The food is always excellent, staff always friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend for a lovely dinner out.

We were pleased with our room, and all service was excellent. The two dinners I had were a little disappointing, the chicken kiev was lacking in the amount of garlic butter, making it dry, and the fish pie suffered from variety of fish/seafood and watery sauce. My husband's meals were fine and the breakfasts excellent.

Food good - although side salads were ok, they could have been a little bit more imaginative! Veggie supper, however super! Thank you. :-)
