The Brudenell Seafood & Grill Restaurant

Dining in The Brudenell's stylish 2 AA rosette Restaurant is truly an experience. With its amazing panoramic sea views, the Ocean Bar's sea-blue and sunshine-yellow décor brings the seaside, inside.

There is a real cosmopolitan atmosphere during the summer months when al fresco dining is available on the hotel's sea-facing terrace; what better than to savour a crab salad or 'The Bru’s' infamous homemade fishcakes, whilst listening to the soothing sound of waves crashing on the beach?

Location & Local Attractions

Aldeburgh is a quiet but popular seaside resort within easy reach of London, the South-East and the Midlands, which has managed to escape brash commercialism in favour of retaining the charm and genteel atmosphere of a bygone age.

A flourishing town, which developed after the prosperous medieval fishing and ship-building centre of Slaughden was destroyed by the sea, it is today best known for the brightly coloured fishing boats which line the shingle beach and the world-renowned Aldeburgh Festival, based at nearby Snape Maltings.

Situated in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Aldeburgh makes an ideal base from which to explore the area. There are many walks, both coast and country, and a number of nature reserves, including Havergate Island and RSPB Minsmere.

There is excellent sailing on the River Alde and golfers are spoilt for choice with excellent courses at Thorpeness and Aldeburgh.

Pensioner

Pensioner, stayed: October 2018

The staff were very helpful especially one of the male bar staff/waiter. Would have liked more choice in the main menu. Cooked breakfast seemed as if it had been kept hot as the bacon was dry and difficult to cut. The lounge area was relaxing and there was plenty of room to sit and have coffee etc.

short break

JN, Kent, stayed: October 2016

My husband and I had a lovely short break at this hotel. When booking we were advised there was not a lift at this hotel and I therefore requested a ground floor room as my husband is terminally ill and stairs are a problem to him. I was told our room would be on the first floor and reluctantly agreed to proceed with the booking. On arrival we were told that our room was on the second floor however this turned out not to be a problem as the hotel did actually have a lift. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and whilst a little expensive would stay again if in the area. Room and restaurant both very good.

Two day break

JC, Essex, stayed: September 2016

Although this was a sea front hotel we found our small room was at the back. The car parking was diverse and difficult. You got the impression that although the staff were friendly the hotel was under manned. i,e. the service was slow.
