It is not surprising that this beautiful Coastal town has long since become a foodie hub with fresh seafood and fish sold locally on the beach daily and an abundance of local artisan produce, it is hardly surprising that there is a thriving array of well reputed restaurants, cafes and food outlets to enjoy here in Aldeburgh. ...and for good old fish and chips on the beach you can't beat the fish and chip shops owned by the same family since 1967 and described by the Times as "possibly the finest on the East Coast"
Among them, Lawson's Deli on the High Street in Aldeburgh has regularly been voted Suffolk's Best Deli in the Suffolk Food and Drink Awards and Claire's Pork Pie won a Food Champion of Pies Award. With the very best artisan and fresh local produce being complimented by a great range from the continent this is a place you will have trouble not visiting time and time again. If your stay is self catered why not pre-order a hamper to collect upon your arrival!
...and let's not forget Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival is held annually at Snape Maltings via the Sailor's path but be prepared for a 12 mile return hike. It is well worth a visit whether you get there on foot or by car, as it is the major celebration of Suffolk's finest local produce and a good chance to fill your pantry with rare and unusual tasty local treats.
