Carl and Beth Shillingford have moved from nearby arts venue, The Quay in Sudbury, to these converted former stables, “in the middle of a small village”. “With a carefully constructed ever-changing menu, Carl manages to forage for and produce the most wonderful food with ingredients garnered from the Suffolk countryside”: “amazing!”.

In arts venue The Quay, Carl Shillingford’s unusual Thursday to Saturday night wild food pop-up delivers “foraged food where the dishes taste even better than their description” (‘White Cloud’ salad, ‘Seagrass Sushi’ etc.) plus “interesting, reasonable wines”; it’s “an experience to really enjoy and remember”.

“A small, intimate restaurant at the top of the Quay theatre” which inspires effusive reports of Carl Shillingford’s “star-quality dishes” from “fabulous ingredients” (for which he himself goes foraging), all “beautifully presented”. NB this pop-up-style spot is open on Friday and Saturday nights only.
