“A great place for a tasty lunch”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

If you are shopping in Aldeburgh or visiting Thompson’s excellent art gallery this is a great place to lunch. Note it is not normally open in the evening and it is not really suitable for young children as the tables are quite close together. The food is vegetarian (including fish) and the cooking style has far Eastern influences. On my last visit I had pad thai which was very good but as it is a dish I have not had before I cannot comment on its authenticity. My wife had kedgeree which she has also had on previous visits and she said it was as good as ever. Unfortunately my favourite dish here – Singapore noodles which is excellent – was not on the menu. The food is reasonably priced and wine and beer are available.

Always full, so a good sign. Great veggie food, contemporary menus & modern decor. Can be problematic getting a seat!

“Aldeburgh market and antique fair”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

We visited the market on the first Saturday of the month which is when the farmers market is held. A huge variety of delicious home made food and local produce, and lots of samples to taste too! The antique rooms have a good collection of interesting but overpriced bric a brac, furniture, glassware etc worth exploring for a while on a cold winters day. The setting in the Maltings is lovely and worth a look around.

“Varied menu, good food”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

AM is a cafe-style restaurant linked to a fish-shop/deli. It stands out from the twee and expensive Aldeburgh tea-room fare by virtue of its interesting menu, majoring on fish.

Chili squid and tempura prawns with a fascinating dipping sauce were great, while the risotto to follow was excellent and the Pad Thai Prawn let down only by using spaghetti (!) rather than rice noodles.

The seating is intimate and informal - small tables, relatively close together - so it's not really a dress-up or special occasion place. Main courses were aroun £8-13 and starters c£5~8.

Friendly staff, good service and only slightly more expensive than cafe levels all added up to a pleasant meal.
