Featured Bury St Edmunds Restaurants
1. Maison Bleue French restaurant in Bury St Edmunds 30-31 Churchgate St - IP33
“Fantastique!” – Pascal & Karine Canavet’s “little piece of France in Suffolk” goes “from strength to strength”, providing “an absolutely first rate” combination of “fabulous and exquisitely presented” Gallic fare, “charming” and “so professional” service and “elegant surroundings”. In particular the “super fish dishes always hit the mark”. “We usually visit at lunchtime and have to drive through two counties to get there!!”
2. 1921 Angel Hill British, Modern restaurant in Bury St Edmunds 19-21 Angel Hill - IP33
“The influence of a committed chef-patron is obvious” at this “fab old building” – a “lovely old house just off Angel Hill”, modernised with a “smart interior”: Zack Deakins’s “phenomenal” food is “ambitious yet well-executed” (“I was genuinely left speechless it was so good!”) and delivered by “a well-led front of house” who provide “slick, discreet service”. “Do try the canapes, but get your own set or you will fight over them!”.
3. The Northgate British, Modern restaurant in Bury St Edmunds Northgate Street - P33
“For that romantic meal close to the town centre within super gardens and with a great terrace”, this elegant restaurant with rooms provides a “gorgeous” setting and “delicious cooking”. At lunch, there’s a cheaper set menu (as well as the option of sandwiches and salads).
4. The Angel Eaterie British, Modern restaurant in Bury St Edmunds The Angel Hotel, 3 Angel Hill, - IP33
2019 Review: The relaxed ground floor brasserie of this attractive Georgian coaching inn, in the town centre, wins positive (if limited) feedback as an all-day dining destination with options from breakfast on.
5. The One Bull British, Modern restaurant in Bury St Edmunds 25 Angel Hill - IP33
“A great family atmosphere” buoyed by “cheery, well-informed staff” adds to the appeal of this very modern pub – part of the small stable run by the local Brewshed brewery. As well as their own good brews, they serve 40 wines by the glass.
6. 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.”
7. Valley Connection British, Modern restaurant in Bury St Edmunds 42 Churchgate St - IP33
2018 Review: “Above-average Indian food, well cooked and presented in a modern setting” again wins praise for this town-centre Indian.
8. Voujon Indian restaurant in Bury St Edmunds 29 Mustow St - IP33
2019 Review: “The best Indian restaurant in the area” pretty much ticks all the boxes: polished setting, “fantastic value” (if slightly standard) grub (“even the toilets are good!)”
