The White Lion
seaviewVery welcoming, a table in the window with a seaview. Pleasant and not pushy service.The food is good with plenty of choice.19/05/2013 00:00:00Lovely venueThis was my second visit and I bought my girl friend . We enjoyed the music and the singer, he was very good and created just the right ambience.
We thought a dinner dance evening would be rather pleasant with similar music and the chance to have a romantic twirl round the floor...
I'm not interested in getting loads of Emails as I live in chelmsford and would only come on rare occasions.05/05/2013 00:00:00Great WhiteDinner at the White Lion in Aldeburgh is one of the most consistently good dining experiences in the area. The day menu deal is outstanding value and always packed full of flavour. The availability of local bitter to compliment the food, as well as the other drinks for those who must, adds to the experience. Local sourcing at its best means food tastes of what it is supposed to - chicken that tastes of chicken is so rare it is notable when you get some, and the beef was superbly matured and flavoursome. Portions that satisfy the largest appetite and no stinting on the sides make £15.95 for a 3 course dinner exceptional value.05/05/2013 00:00:00Fabulous mealMy husband and I had a great meal at the Brasserie. It really was perfect. Great choice and top quality.03/05/2013 00:00:00First Class All RoundOnce again the White Lion lived up to previous visits. We found the fixed price menu more than adequate for the four of us. The layout gives diners a good chance to talk privately if you want to. We were given a very warm welcome and the service continued to be superb. Food was well presented and of fine quality. For the price I would say unbeatable02/05/2013 00:00:00sunday lunchthe atmosphere on a sunday lunch time is so welcoming and relaxed ,and the food and service helps to create a wondiful place to to unwind after a busy week.

This time we took family with us for lunch and they too were impressed with the quality of the food. The fish is exceptional; tasty and very fresh. The White Lion is now a firm favourite when we visit Aldeburgh.29/03/2013 00:00:00birthday treatall four of us enjoyed a lovely meal at White Lion on Saturday evening. Great choice of both food and wine. Service excellent although we were early in the evening. Will definitely be back again.09/02/2013 00:00:00Sunday LunchAbsolutely fantastic, with beef cooked to order - unlike may places they weren't averse to serving it rare. Service very good, we were looked after about as well as we could have been - would go back in a heartbeat. Many thanks for a wonderful time!27/01/2013 00:00:00Did not disappoint.....We often visit Aldeburgh for a short break, but had never been to The White Lion for an evening meal, so booked a table for the Saturday after xmas. I requested a quiet table for two tucked away, and they were very obliging. The restaurant was busy, but the service was attentive yet unintrusive, the food was delicious - well cooked and beautifully presented, and very reasonable...we had two starters, two mains and 1 dessert from their set menu, a bottle of organic rioja (superb!) and a coffee/mint tea - cost £52 - excellent value! I would highly recommed this restaurant and will be making sure I book again on my next visit to Aldeburgh!28/12/2012 16:00:00White lion was greatWe didn't know what to expect as our first choice of restaurant didn't have availability but thank goodness for that as the white lion pleased everyone in our picky group of 6 and came in at tremendous value to - will definitely return when in Aldeburgh or environs10/11/2012 00:00:00We had an excellent meal fromWe had an excellent meal from the pre fix menu. Good choice and value.01/11/2012 00:00:00Apart from a slightly blandApart from a slightly bland starter (smoked haddock fishcake) the food at The White Lion was excellent. I had Sea Bass and Risotto with crab for main and it was cooked perfectly. My girlfriend had the sirloin steak and again that was excellent. Desserts too were top-notch - the cheesecake and the creme brulee were delicious. Regarding the restaurant itself there was plenty of room, and despite the restuarant being full the acoustics were good so the noise was not excessive. The restaurant's interior is very stylishly decorated, and the seats comfortable - making for a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Finally, the staff were very friendly and attentive, and looked as though they enjoyed working there; a tribute to the manager. Recommended.14/04/2012 00:00:00Very good lunch, the atmosphereVery good lunch, the atmosphere in the restaurant was good and was added to with the view of fishermen and lifeboatmen working on the beach.30/01/2012 16:00:00
