Restaurant of the week: Seafood & Grill Restaurant at Brudenell Hotel in Aldeburgh, Suffolk
The Brudenell Hotel, which overlooks Suffolk’s Heritage Coast at Aldeburgh, has a stunning AA two rosette Seafood & Grill restaurant and sea-facing terrace.
Privately owned, the four star, 44 bedroom hotel, is in a wonderful seafront setting, just a step away from the shingle beach with panoramic sea views to the front, while at the back it overlooks the river Alde and surrounding countryside.
Menus in the Seafood & Grill are created by Head Chef Tyler Torrance and focus on the region’s natural larder using sustainably and ethically sourced fish and seafood.
Dishes include a mixed seafood grill; potted smoked east coast mackerel served with Suffolk beetroot chutney and melba toast; whole dressed Aldeburgh crab and Harwich lobster; free-range meats and vegetarian options are also available. The menu includes sharing platters and lighter bites and nibbles that are prefect to enjoy on the terrace with friends and a bottle of chilled white wine.
Interior furnishings featuring vibrant seaside colours create a stylish contemporary dining venue. A highlight is the bar area offering an informal space where hotel guests and local residents can just sit and relax over a drink or two or enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail.
Outside, one side of the terrace will be devoted to dining al fresco, while the other for relaxing and enjoying a drink or two with contemporary lounge type furniture, while taking in the stunning uninterrupted sea views.
The Seafood & Grill restaurant is open daily for lunch (from 12noon – 2pm) and dinner (6pm – 9pm), with drinks and light snacks served all day.
Stylish sea facing bedrooms have contemporary, coastal themed décor; where size allows there’s a seat by the window to relax and watch the ever-changing sea. Get up early and see the sun rise over the glistening sea on a fine day, or great for storm watching in winter, while comfy and warm indoors. Finished in countryside colours, Aldeburgh facing rooms have views over the river Alde to the gentle landscapes beyond.
