The decor is poor and the chairs/benches are not particularly comfortable. The wine list is very poor. Unfortunately we dined in the evening on a Monday and the place was deserted so there was no atmosphere but the waitress who was very friendly and helpful assured us that up to then they have been extremely busy and it is now out of season. Overall food was above average but if you like a slightly upmarket venue then this is not the place.

Absolutely terrible!!! I ordered the Smoked Chicken and Pancetta Ceaser Salad, and received a clump of iceberg covered in mayo with no pancetta in sight and a large (4 inches) chicken bone. When I complained they said they were out of pancetta (why not tell me when I ordered!!!?) and dismissed the bone. However, they did replace the salad with a new one that had crispy bacon instead. Although there was no apology or reduction in the price which was a tenner!!!!! The restaurant is also quite dirty (especially the toilets), it does not live up to its prices - very disappointing, there are so many better places to go.

Absolutely dreadful place. Please avoid it. I had the misfortune of having to have lunch here for the sole reason that every other establishment in this town seemed to be closed...at lunchtime, can you believe it? Anyway this place was open and we ordered three sandwiches and three drinks. It came to £27. The "sandwiches" themselves were the smallest things I have ever seen. A two year old would expect more food. This restaurant is the most pretentious place I have ever had the misfortune to visit. If next time I have a choice between hunger and lunch here I will choose hunger and I advise anyone who loves food, and who loves a proper place to eat honest fare at an honest price to do the same.

My husband, young son and myself ate lunch here today and never again. The waitress(if she can be called so) was not welcoming or friendly, not offering the possibilty of a high-chair until asked, and remaining cold throughout. The trouble with being in Aldeburgh is that high standards of food and service are essential, with many new outlets opening up and to start in this way meant that this particular place needed to play 'catch up'. For our starters my husband's soup arrived without the bread that was supposed to come with the meal, and my Ceaser salad was a poor version - one slice of cold bacon and the amount of chicken on the plate was less than I have seen on a toothpick. My main course of wild mushrooms and spinach pasta lacked seasoning and the mushrooms - well, let's say I now know where the phrase 'tough as old boots' comes from. My husband's main was hailbutt wrapped in parma ham in which the ham was too salty for the fish and the legions of sauce clearly overpowered the entire dish. On a good note we were asked if we'd like pudding which (of course) we had. Both the bread and butter pudding and warm bakewell tart (cold) were acceptable but that wasn't difficult given the quality of what had passed beforehand. Between each course I had to catch the eye of the various waitresses (for we must have had at least three different servers) attention to clear the table, and it took over twenty minutes for a final clear-up and the 'bill'. My husband has been coming to Aldeburgh for over ten years, and ate at 152's when it first opened - how times have changed. As said previously, standards need to be kept up and following the decline of the quality at The Lighthouse, there is a real chance for another establishment to take over the mantle of Aldeburghs Best Restaurant. Given 175ml glasses of wine at the same price as others 250ml isn't a great start, and I am afraid tells a story of continual decline. Could do so much better
