The Brasserie Bleue


Located in the historic coastal town of Aldeburgh, just steps from the Moot Hall Museum and directly overlooking the beach, the Brasserie Bleue can be found in the heart of the White Lion Hotel. It’s a delightfully relaxed space with a contemporary décor and stunning sea views.

The team at the helm have worked hard to earn a well-deserved reputation for offering great value, beautifully cooked, classic dishes with an exciting French twist, served in relaxed and informal family-friendly surroundings.

Head Chef, James Barber, has created tempting, but great value prix fixe and a la carte menus with traditional food created from the best of the region’s natural larder from land and sea. There’s also an extensive wine list with both easy-drinking and fine vintages from the world’s best wine producing countries selected by the hotel group’s head sommelier, François Belin.

With the belief that eating out should be a fun experience, shared with family and friends - children can choose from anything from the specially prepared kids menu or ask for a smaller portion from the main menu.
