British, Modern Restaurants in Suffolk
. Pea Porridge
British, Modern restaurant in Bury St Edmunds
28-29 Cannon St - IP33
One of the most popular and highly rated neighbourhood restaurants in the country – Justin & Jurga Sharp’s “delightful” bistro occupies a “tucked-away” townhouse in the heart of the town and “though a little off-the-beaten track is worth seeking out”. “Often combining quirky ingredients”, the “exciting” cuisine is “unusual, hearty” and “brilliantly realised” and supported by a “very interesting wine list”: “of diverse inspiration, with lots of natural wines and perfectly complementing the food”. Service, meanwhile “could not be more welcoming or accommodating.”
. The Crown & Castle
British, Modern restaurant in Orford
“Consistently good, flavoursome local food” (with “fish a strong point, landed on the nearby village quay”) is abetted by “efficient but laidback service” at this crowd-pleasing hotel; while TV’s ‘Hotel Inspector’ Ruth Watson sold it to a local hotel group recently, longtime regulars report that standards have been preserved.
. Leaping Hare Vineyard
British, Modern restaurant in Stanton
Wyken Vineyards - IP31
“A stunning location, outstanding food and their own delicious wine” make this 400-year-old oak-framed barn conversion on the Wyken estate “a brilliant place to take friends from abroad” – while for locals it’s “good enough to save seeking alternatives nearby”. Open for more than 25 years, the restaurant “makes great use of local produce”.
. The Crown
British, Modern restaurant in Stoke-by-Nayland
Park Street - CO6
“Spectacular views, smart accommodation and consistently good food” – this gastropub with rooms in beautiful Constable countryside is well worth the drive – and “the prices aren’t crippling”.
. The Lighthouse
British, Modern restaurant in Aldeburgh
77 High Street - IP15
“Long a local favourite” with a big and loyal fan club, which “maintains standards effortlessly, or so it seems” – be it for the “terrific fish” (“from boat to restaurant in 100 metres”) or the “always-great welcome” from owner Sam Hayes, “an absolute master of the art”.
. Secret Garden
British, Modern restaurant in Sudbury
17 - 21 Friars Street - CO10
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”.
