Foodie Holidays

FoodieThe way to a holidaymaker’s heart is through his or her stomach, we hear… so it’s no surprise that so many fall in love with Suffolk, our county chock-full of foodie delights!

Regular and specialist markets, produce shows, farm shops and deli counters prove the perfect ‘hunting ground’ for those who want to cook up a storm in their holiday cottage kitchen. If you’re not sure where to start, Suffolk Heritage Food Tours showcase the county’s produce, places and people. A menu of coastal and countryside tours – via small tour buses and private cars – offers some fantastic food and drink indulgences, or you could book a bespoke day out to suit your own tastes or dietary requirements.

Bag a bargain at a Suffolk Market Events monthly markets in one of three beautiful settings: Lavenham, Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury. This organisation also collaborates with Foragers Feast – a joint venture between forager/chef Carl Shillingford and Matthew Rooney, an ecologist and mushroom grower – to run fantastic foraging days in some of rural Suffolk’s most stunning landscapes.

If you’d prefer to let someone else do the hunter-gathering, then our holiday extras can help … choose from luxury meat box or sponge cake deliveries, plan a vineyard tour, book a cookery workshop, a Prosecco party or even hire a private chef to get your holiday off to a great start. Tell us what sets your tastebuds tingling and we’ll do the rest! 

And, of course, for those who love to eat out, Suffolk is full of fantastic restaurants, while many of its pubs consider food just as important as the pints they pull.

Bromeswell gastropub The Unruly Pig scooped the title of Best Restaurant at the Eat Suffolk Food and Drink Awards 2018, clinching victory over some very sharp competition including The Bildeston Crown, Tuddenham Mill and the elegant 1921 Angel Hill in Bury St Edmunds. 

On the road out of Long Melford towards Cavendish, Scutchers Restaurant is another multi-award winner, open Thursday to Saturday only each week. If you can’t get a table, a selection of meals, sauces and wines are all available in the Scutchers Shop – perfect for a sofa supper in your holiday cottage! 

Local produce features in so many memorable meals, but that doesn’t mean Suffolk’s chefs are all inwardly-focused. Impeccable French cuisine is served both at Maison Bleue in Bury St Edmunds and on board floating restaurant Mariners in Ipswich, while just a short walk from the latter, Aqua Eight offers some of the best Pan-Asian cuisine for miles and in Woodbridge, The Galley is known for its delicious English-continental food, created by its Turkish patron.

Finally, if you’d like to do some sightseeing while you eat, book a meal aboard Lady Florence, an ex-Admiralty motor fishing vessel that is now a lovely venue for intimate brunch, lunch and dinner cruises along the Rivers Alde and Ore. Sister ship Allen Gardiner caters for up to 12 passengers along the River Orwell too – book an exclusive private charter, or share the fun with other passengers.
