Regatta Restaurant 171 High Street, Aldeburgh 01728 452011

Coronavirus Update – we have reopened for indoor dining and are taking bookings on 01728452011!

News – we are delighted to have been awarded an AA Rosette for Culinary Excellence!

Local twins Alex and Oliver Burnside were delighted to take on Regatta Restaurant, situated in the heart of Aldeburgh high street, in July 2020. Specialising in primarily seafood dishes to reflect its coastal location, our bright, airy restaurant is perfect for any occasion. The brothers have a long history at Regatta – both started their careers there with Alex working for 13 years, 10 years as restaurant manager and Oliver as sous chef for seven years (Alex even met his wife there)! We feel Aldeburgh is a special place and we are proud to be located on such a prominent place on its unique high street.

The two brothers have always lived and worked on the Suffolk Coast. As well as Regatta, Alex and Oliver took on The Golden Key, located in the heart of Snape village, in 2017 and The Plough and Sail, located at the front of Snape Maltings, in 2012.

Both brothers are passionate about their specific areas of expertise – Oliver loves to create tempting menus, using delicious, seasonal produce from his local suppliers and Alex enjoys providing customers with a warm welcome, extensive knowledge and excellent customer service.
