It’s been top dog on Aldeburgh’s increasingly foodie High Street since the late 1990s, and the “busy, buzzy” Lighthouse continues on its merry way, feeding locals, holidaymakers and festival-goers with fresh seasonal food. Fish from the Suffolk boats is always a strong suit, perhaps a salad of pan-seared scallops and bacon or grilled cod fillet on asparagus risotto with rocket leaves, while meatier offerings might range from steaks and calf’s liver with mash to corn-fed chicken breast on guacamole with baby spinach and new potatoes. To finish, perhaps try poached pear in saffron syrup with passion fruit sorbet. The interior is a happy mix of bare tables and café bonhomie with extra space in the sunny full-dress dining room at the back. Friendly, knowledgeable service is appreciated, likewise the well-spread reasonably priced wine list.
