. Pea Porridge
British, Modern restaurant in Bury St Edmunds
28-29 Cannon St - IP33
Justin Sharp (chef) and his wife Jurga (front-of-house), “run a wonderful and eclectic restaurant” in a sidestreet at the heart of this lovely town, occupying a converted town house, where a meal is “akin to eating really good food at your friend’s home”. But there’s nothing very domestic about the “seasonal and creative”, ‘nose-to-tail’ British cuisine however (“with ingredients seldom to be found on the menus of other restaurants”): “rustic and hearty dishes” are “realised with absolute precision”. “The wine list is also interesting, with excellent and informative notes”.
Chinese restaurant in Ipswich
23 St Nicholas St - IP1
“Standards never seem to waver” at this superlative, “authentic” and “always busy” Chinese, where the “extended Vietnamese family owners” offer “exceptional, caring service”. “Leave it in their capable hands” if you’re not sure what to try.
. The Lighthouse
British, Modern restaurant in Aldeburgh
77 High Street - IP15
“An old favourite” (est 1995) for locals and a “place of pilgrimage” for visitors – this “really busy and buzzy” haunt “continues to deliver great food at very reasonable prices” – and “often hits the heights”. “When it comes down to it, it’s the service that makes the difference” under Sam Hayes, the long-time manager who bought the venue a few years ago.
. Secret Garden
British, Modern restaurant in Sudbury
17 - 21 Friars Street - CO10
“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”.
