Harden's survey result
The “super” setting – the beamed, medieval Buzzards Hall – pleases most who report on this three-year-old ‘wine bar & restaurant’ outpost of the adjoining café (although some fans think “its high quality of food and service really deserves crisp white linen and more elegant décor than something that looks like an old fashioned tea room”). No disputes, though, over cuisine stamped with “Gallic authenticity”, and which “continues to improve”.
“What a difference a new venue makes” – this two-year-old spin-off of the neighbouring café, set in the fine surrounds of beamed, 400-year-old Buzzards Hall is praised for French-influenced food which “gets better and better” and “the wine list is carefully chosen and not expensive”.
In late 2016, a hit local café spawned this bold new offshoot – a wine bar and fine dining haunt (with prices to match) set in Buzzards Hall, the grand 400-year-old timbered building next door. The restaurant is open from Wednesday to Saturday for dinner (enjoy charcuterie and an artisanal cheese trolley in the bar); initial feedback is stellar, but devoid of detail.
“A great little piece of France in this small market town” – a “friendly, cosy and comfortable” spot where “the food is always delicious” (and sometimes even “exceptional”). Stop press – the café is due to close in November 2016, for a major expansion into the neighbouring 15th century Buzzards Hall, with a view to “putting Sudbury on the [culinary] map”.
