“Good quality food on the waterfront”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

I travelled to Aldeburgh for a family visit on Easter Sunday and had reserved a table for the evening. The Wentworth is a traditional hotel that has been in the same family for decades - but they obviously take pride in keeping up to date with good presentation, decor and menus. Not over fussy but good comfortable, traditional yet stylish dining rooms and lounge.

The menu had plenty of choices - seafood, of course, as it's within sight of the waterfront. But also duck, chicken, vegetarian options and steaks - my steak medallions were perfectly cooked and tender. All 5 of us agreed that the food was delicious, served hot and very good value all round. Highly recommended.

We visited Aldeburgh to see the town where Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears had lived and where Britten's 'Peter Grimes' is set and enjoyed it very much.

Comfortable surroundings, wide-ranging menu, especially strong on fish, mature clientele, attentive though not over skilled service -very much a traditional seaside hotel

“Stylish hotel and restaurant right on the beach”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

We went here with some good friends for lunch last Saturday.
The hotel has a certain style that is not found in modern establishments and enjoys an enviable position right on the beach at Aldeburgh.
From our table we could see the beach and also the fish supplier where a lot of our lunch was apparently sourced from.
A lovely meal some of our courses including smoked ckicken and avocado, crayfish and prawn and a lovely crab salad.
All of our courses got a thumbs up and we also had a bottle from the very nice wine list.
Coffee to follow in the equally stylish lounge.
The hotel has apparently been in the same family for around 90 years and there are plentiful signs of a caring involved ownership.
Would definitely recommend for a classic English seaside lunch. Our friends have stayed in the rooms here and say that they are also of a high standard.

“Superb meal, excellent service”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

While staying in Aldeburgh we booked the Wentworth Restaurant to celebrate a special birthday. The hotel was very attractive with lots of places to sit in comfort by open fires, reading and relaxing. The restaurant menu had a very good selection, service excellent, with a good wine menu. We all had a thoroughly enjoyable meal and would be very happy to visit again when next in the area. Thank you Wentworth.
