Eating Out

There is a wide range of local restaurants, cafes and inns. The Peacock Inn (see below) is 100 yards away but there are many other wonderful restaurants in the immediate area. A selection appears below.

The Peacock Inn - Cheslworth: Our local inn, 100 yards from our door. A classic timber-framed old Suffolk inn with loads of history and character. Beautifully situated opposite the old bridge in the centre of the village. Appears in endless postcards, paintings, books etc. Real ales and food. No website at present.
The Swan - Monks Eleigh: A beautiful timber-framed, thatched medieval inn. Under new management recently.
The Crown - Bildeston 'The Crown is an original 15th century timber framed public house. The entire building has been completely refurbished to include a modern but still traditionally spectacular restaurant, bar and hotel. Holding the same character it has built up through its years of history.'
The Great House - Lavenham Long established restaurant (Belgian run) with a great reputation and atmosphere. 2009 Britain & Ireland 'Best Restaurant with Rooms' of the year. Good Hotel Guide ‘East of England Restaurant of the year 2009’ - Which? Good Food Guide.
Hintlesham Hall The Hall is a magnificent 16th Century Grade I listed country house hotel surrounded by 175 acres of rolling Suffolk countryside. 'The best quality ingredients build a well-balanced carte which appeals to gourmet and health-conscious alike. Many dishes encompass fresh herbs from the Hall's famous garden'.
Red Rose Inn - Lindsey: 'A 15th century Suffolk hall house and one of the country's oldest pubs, this has been the village of Lindsey's local for over 500 years. Our warm atmosphere welcomes all, including families, walkers, cyclists and those on a country hack in need of a refreshing drink'.
The Angel Inn - Lavenham 'Good food, comfortable rooms and a friendly atmosphere await you in the surroundings of England's finest medieval village. First licensed in 1420 and is believed to be Lavenham's oldest Inn. Retains much of its Tudor character.
The Crown Inn - Stoke-By-Nayland An historic privately owned village Inn, has a reputation for making everyone feel welcome - without pretension - simply a passion for high standards, good service, food, wine and real ale.
The Swan Inn - Lavenham 'Dates back to the 15th Century. Today it is a quintessential English country hotel and restaurant, proud of its achievement of an AA four star 81% rating and two AA Rosettes. Ancient oak beams and inglenook fireplaces blend beautifully with rich furnishings and fabrics to create the perfect ambiance for rest and relaxation. The historic Old Bar boasts a wonderful collection of memorabilia, including a wall signed by British and American airmen stationed at Lavenham Airfield during World War II.'
Maison Bleue - Bury St Edmunds 'There will come a day when our championing of this brilliant French restaurant means we will not be able to book a seat there due to it being so busy! Until that time we will simply state our great admiration for the cuisine, wine and new décor.’ East Anglia Daily Times
Il Punto - Ipswich Marina 'A renowned French Brasserie afloat, moored alongside Neptune Quay at Ipswich Marina. Many of the original features of this fine and much travelled vessel, launched in 1899 in Belgium, are retained. The brasswork gleams, the woodwork reflects the subtle lights from the boat-studded harbour scene outside.'
