White Lion Hotel Dining
Our new Bar and Brasserie has been inspired by a modern desire to return to simple, 'back to basics' food, offering freshly prepared dishes, contemporary, informal surroundings and impeccable service.
We hope the whole family will enjoy our locally sourced menus and dining in our contemporary restaurant. From fresh fish bought from Dean's Shed, situated on the beach opposite the White Lion, to smoked kippers sourced from Pinney's of Orford, every ingredient used in the exciting dishes which feature on the new menu, has been 'hand picked' to guarantee an abundance of flavours - Bon Appétit.

Meet our Head Chef... Jason Shaw
A man who always has a smile on his face is the chef responsible for creating the wonderfully inventive dishes which feature on our Bar & Brasserie menu. Jason started his career working at the 5 star Royal Garden Hotel and has worked in some of London’s top hotels and restaurants, after a number of years working as head chef at the White Lion's sister hotel, the four star AA two rosette Brudenell in Aldeburgh, Jason followed his South African wife, also a talented chef, to her home country, where he lived for two years, vastly broadening his experience by working as executive chef at the Windmill Casino.
In early 2011, the fresh Aldeburgh sea air and his love of Suffolk brought him home, with his wife and two young sons, to take up the position of executive chef at the White Lion. Jason’s love of good food is firmly demonstrated in his menu. Using local produce, he differentiates his cooking from other restaurants in Aldeburgh by adding a subtle French twist.
