Delicious Local Dining


We thought we’d share a quick summary of some of the places that we’ve visited recently, as a team or individually with our families, for those looking for somewhere to eat when staying here at The Suffolk Escape or if you’re visiting the area. There are lots of other pubs and restaurants that are on our list to visit and we’ll be sure to share them with you.

The Lindsey Rose, Lindsey Tye (approx. 8 miles away)
A proper country pub experience in a quiet Suffolk hamlet. This small, 500 year old pub prides itself on local, freshly prepared produce, great ales in a special location with plenty of outdoor space to enjoy in the summer. We took our whole team here for a thank you night out recently and we all had a fantastic meal with superb service so are happy to recommend it!

The Brook Inn, Washbrook (approx. 4.5 miles away)
Very popular and for good reason! A huge selection of inventive food on offer including an extensive gluten free menu (with a number of very tasty gluten free puddings!), an accommodating and friendly team, and good atmosphere. It’s a community run pub and there is a real sense of community there. Do book in advance though, it gets booked up very quickly!

Duke of Marlborough, Somersham (approx. 5 miles away)
You are guaranteed a warm welcome, a relaxed atmosphere and real home-cooked food here. For those wanting to pop in for a drink, there is always an interesting selection of beers on tap and the gin options will be sure to see you trying one you’ve probably not experienced before! There is often something going on whether Happy Hour, Breakfast Club, a quiz or the annual beer festival late August.

Cook House at the Suffolk Food Hall, Wherstead (approx. 9 miles away)
Lovely setting with views over the River Orwell and the Orwell Bridge. Visited for brunch and enjoyed a tasty breakfast with a good choice for all members of the families. A bustling atmosphere but relaxed and spacious. Allow time to have a wander around the Food Hall with its large farm shop of locally produced goods.

We’d love to hear of any places you visit and any recommendations.
