Summary

“Make sure you get some of the canapés to kick things off” at Zack Deakins’s ambitious venture, which inhabits a “charming and ancient” building in the heart of the town. The “finely wrought” cooking here is characterised by “flourishes such as accompanying flowers and small pickles” but “along with the huge amount of detailing goes a huge amount of flavour”. “After all the work involved the bill is not onerous and they deserve to do very well”.

Summary

Zack Deakins’s “fabulous” yearling “will get ever-busier and better known, because the quality and value this pedigree team are producing is first rate”; “tremendous care and attention to detail goes into every dish”, and it delivers “Michelin star-style food at very reasonable prices” (if, perhaps, in “cheffy rather than Suffolk portion sizes”). “It’s a lovely chilled venue too, with delightful staff”.

Owner's description

“Located in the heart of Bury St Edmunds – a town increasingly renowned for its restaurant scene – 1921 Angel Hill provides a uniquely refreshing fine dining option.


With Zack Deakins as chef patron, the restaurant follows an unconventional approach with relaxed service and the food reigning supreme.


Guests can enjoy a selection of canapés served alongside an aperitif in the lounge, whilst viewing a menu championing local produce, before moving into the dining room, accented with local artwork and re-homed books.


Expertly crafted starters include tender Ardleigh asparagus accented by truffle croquettes, deftly served alongside radish and roasted hazelnuts.


Main courses are further reflective of the surrounding farmland, currently including a succulent saddle of lamb sourced from the Denham Estate, accompanied by wild garlic and girolles.


Finish the evening in proper English fashion, with a delicately aromatic strawberry consommé and lavender panna cotta, to be followed, of course, by Bury’s own Butterworth’s coffee and a selection of hand-crafted petit fours.

"This restaurant is fantastic. We visited for lunch today for a special occasion and it lived up to a celebratory meal. The gentleman who looked after us was professional, friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine without rushing us, event though we were a late lunchtime booking."

"We had a beautiful meal at 1921 and the presentations was excellent. We felt our service suffered slightly because there was a table of 13 in the restaurant (had to ask for aperitifs, the bread came after the starters and we could not have a cocktail in the lounge area, but instead had to go straight to our seats). All this said that is the luck of the draw and we had a very nice evening."
