Home-Made Pre-Order Meal Service

Chilli & Chives – crumble
Chilli & Chives – lemon tart

Start your relaxing break here at The Suffolk Escape without the need to think of what to eat, what to cook or having to head out to a supermarket, especially if you’ve had a long journey. Instead, enjoy a cup of tea or glass of wine in the comfort of your log cabin or the Sheepyard Barn knowing all is in hand and that you can truly stop, relax and unwind from the moment you arrive!

Why not pre-order a home made meal from local cafe and small shop, Chilli & Chives, in the centre of our village in Hintlesham. They offer a home-made meal service that can be pre-ordered in advance of your stay and in your accommodation on your arrival, ready for you to enjoy that evening.

Helen, owner and chef, creates home-made meals and desserts that can be pre-ordered and delivered to your accommodation for your arrival night (or as many nights as you’d like!) here at The Suffolk Escape. All are frozen and simply need defrosting when you’re ready to dine.

Orders and payment can be made directly with Helen, and where possible she will help arrange for your food to be ready in your accommodation for when you arrive.
