we just fancy going somewhere to eat in southwold, we looked at some of the puds that all looked very much the same, although the food is all very much alike here, we just liked the look of this place, it was very busy, but we managed to get a table, the aspals was somewhat fizzy, and not the beat glass of aspals ive ever had, the food was fresh and tasty, and the staff were really friendly, the desserts on the other hand were somewhat on the small side and for nearly £6 would of liked a larger portion, it wasn't cheap but I didn't mind that as it was lovely and has a vibrant café feel to it which makes it different from the other places to eat in southwold, we will come again

Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere, food is very tasty and well presented. Even though they were really busy managed to find a table for us.

This is a lovely family run restaurant that we would not hesitate to come back to next time we are in Southwold! Thank you

My wife and I recently had a wonderful meal in The Blue Lighthouse. Booking is a must, which we failed to do, but we were handled so politely when we turned up on spec that we were happy to go for a wander until a table was ready for us. The food was excellent and very good value. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff were attentive and friendly.

We (two adults, one 4-year-old) had lunch at The Blue Lighthouse on a bank holiday Monday in May.

The food was very good, and not excessively priced. We were early for lunch (12.15) so perhaps I was first to comment, but the cooling system for the beer wasn't working properly so the draft lager was tepid. I was given a refund and offered a bottled beer from the fridge but that didn't seem to be working either! It was well handled though and otherwise we had a thoroughly pleasant meal. I would assume it was an isolated occurrence and visit again.
