Best Restaurants in Suffolk

When it comes to Restaurants it's easy to forget how good we have it in Suffolk. Local sourcing of fish (a wide range), beef (Red Poll beef in particular), Pork (good enough for The Ivy!) and lamb combined with seasonal vegetables (asparagus and potatoes are amongst Suffolk's best known produce) washed down with local Ales (from Greene King & Adnams) - provide the best raw materials any Chef could wish for! Consequently we have many fabulous restaurants throughout the country, and here's our Guide to the best -

Sutherland House
Sutherland House

We believe this is one of the best restaurants in Suffolk but don't just take our word for it -they were included in the “150 best restaurants in the UK” by the Sunday Telegraph in August 2012. This restaurant with rooms is in one of the oldest buildings on Southwold High Street offering a huge amount of character, as well as a convenient accommodation option for those wanting to enjoy the full range of their wine list. Award-winning fish dishes are served daily and they have been awarded two rosettes by the AA. To find out why just click on Sutherland House, Southwold

The Great House in Lavenham

This French Restaurant with rooms has received numerous accolades and awards over the 25 years that it has been owned by Regis and Martine Crepy including ‘2009 Britain Best Restaurant with Rooms’ by the Good Hotel Guide.

Kesgrave Hall

"Open all day so no need to rush!" - is the motto at Kesgrave Hall, Ipswich and you won't want to rush as the food and "theatre" (an open-plan kitchen allowing diners to see exactly what goes on in the kitchen) will encourage you to linger. Head Chef Stuart Oliver champions all that is great about Suffolk produce, and there's a daily specials board so you'll find plenty of fresh seasonal produce to choose from.

Best Restaurants in Suffolk
Hintlesham Hall

As you'd expect from one of Suffolk best Hotels their restaurant is also one of the best.
Head Chef, Alan Ford, demands the top quality ingredients to build a well-balanced carte which appeals to gourmet and health-conscious alike, and many of his dishes include fresh herbs from the Hall's famous garden. Tasting menus, Sunday set menus (very popular, book in advance), an award-winning, 350-bin wine list and a varied, seasonal menu in grand and elegant surroundings - what more could you ask for? Hintlesham Hall

Lindsay House Restaurant

Lindsay House Restaurant, Eye is a family-run restaurant providing an eclectic menu in an informal, friendly atmosphere. Great emphasis is put on using only the best of local, seasonal produce. Why not bring the family for a traditional roast of locally-reared beef on Sunday Lunch? All dishes are prepared in-house - including tempting desserts such as sticky date pudding with toffee sauce, soft centred chocolate pudding and lemon tart - yum yum!
