A "stand-out" restaurant on the Suffolk coast has received more national acclaim as one of the best places to stay in the UK.

The Telegraph has listed the top 20 restaurants with rooms worth a visit across the country, with highly rated The Suffolk in Aldeburgh featured. 

Since opening in 2022, the coastal eatery has impressed many and at the start of the year was featured in a similar round-up by Olive Magazine.

Speaking about The Suffolk, the Telegraph said: "Managing director of London's L'Escargot, George Pell, relocacted to Aldeburgh during the pandemic when he set up a seaside pop-up, L'Escargot Sur-Mer. Bet then Pell never left and The Suffolk was born.

"Six little bedrooms are unassuming in shades of white and blue that manage to avoid any cliched nautical tropes. 

"But it's the seafood in the restaurant that is stand-out: oysters from Pinney's in nearby Orford, dressed crab with pickled cucumber and avocado, and barbecued lobster doused in garlic butter. 

"Plus Pell, who knows everyone, is full of additional local recommendations for exploring."
