Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is not really a restaurant but is a shop on the beach. There are some benches that one could eat the food if you want. The idea of smoked fish actually works really well as it is lightly smoked and the prawns with garlic...mayonnaise are lovely. The winner by far is noon pie. I think of an omelette Arnold Bennett in pie form!More

Walked up to this stall and the smell was amazing. We had the Noon tart and the Crab and Samphire tart plus took home mackerel pate and smoked trout. All of the food was amazing we will be back. There is not much room to...sit but there are plenty of benches around this area. Get a nice loaf of bread to go with the pate.More

Decided to drive to Aldeburgh from Essex as it was a bright sunny morning and as soon as we arrived headed straight to Ash smoked fisheries. This place is the best for fresh quality seafood at an affordable price, definitely worth trying.

My daughter and her partner came day 2 and loved...the prawns and dip agin for lunch and on our return home today we bought the Noon pies (smoked haddock and cheese sauce) and had them for dinner tonight. Everything was fresh and tasty.More

Lovely fresh smoked fish. Particularly recommend the tartlets. We had crab and samphire and also smoked trout and spinach. The taster packs containing 6 or 7 different samples of smoked fish a9nd shellfish are a great introduction.

Our annual visit to Aldeburgh necessitated us visiting twice for lunch. On our last morning I had an order from my neighbour for several Noon Tarts and other goodies amounting to some £46! I also stocked up for us and brought back a Noon Tart...for a friend who is an accomplished chef as I would like her to try and duplicate it - that is still a work in progress! Wish we lived closer.More

Called in late morning whilst visiting Aldeburgh. Decided to try the mixed sample offer which was a collection of around 8-10 different lightly smoked seafoods. Nice interesting sample and would certainly go again if in the area. Sat outside on bench as the weather was...nice.More

Wonderful! We went to Aldeburgh just to go to this smokery. It didn’t disappoint. There is a good range of smoked fish. We tried a range of dishes (prawns, smoked salmon, tart) - they were all delicious. Prices are very reasonable. It’s in a great...location too - right on the beach. Highly recommended.More
