For the fish lovers

If you’re after an exceptional seafood experience, The Brudenell is for you. This coastal restaurant is situated in the quaint village of Aldeburgh. Just a stone’s throw from the beach,

Every table enjoys panoramic sea views. Local fishermen deliver their catch each morning – beach dug clams, River Deben mussels and Dover sole, to name just a few. Their menu changes seasonally, so expect crayfish and skate in the spring, while later months bring crab, cuttlefish and salmon.
