Baylham House Farm is set in acres of Suffolk farmland, owned by the Storer family since 1985. They are passionate about breeding traditional varieties of farm animals, to protect them against the detrimental effect of commercial pressures on the industry.
Number Ten Wine Bar & Kitchen is found in a lovely 15th century house, in the charming medieval village of Lavenham. Run by Rod and Jo who grew up in the village, they serve delicious home cooked food and excellent wine with passion and enthusiasm.
Such a good pub they gave it two names! A proper old dog-friendly Suffolk Country Pub with fabulous garden. The Low House is one of the very few pubs left in Britain that has no bar-counter. You go in the tap room at the back. Beer drinkers survey the array of barrels and request whatever takes the fancy, drawn straight from the barrel! How good is that?
One of my favourite local places; formerly The Queens Head it is now very much more a restaurant than a pub. It’s only 20 minutes from our holiday cottages so is a popular stop-off for many of our guests.
A fabulous, small family owned and run Restaurant in Yaxley, near Eye. It was once a rural public house providing simple food and drink for locals, but now, after tasteful improvements which retain the cosiness of the historic building, it offers some of the finest food in Suffolk. And I can vouch for that!
The food, ambience and service are excellent. A real family-run place with the emphasis on quality. One of their special dining experiences is the Fruits de Mer. Sourcing the best sea food this platter can consist of Lobster, Crab, Oysters, Mussels, Crevettes, Shrimps, Prawns, Langoustine, Cray fish, Whelks, Clams and anything else that is in season. Please give them at least 24 hours’ notice if you want this dish

This is a wonderful little woodland walk that starts from Coddenham. Having been told by a friend that there were positive sightings of millions of Snowdrops, we went in search of them…
Great country pub serving fresh local food
Rustic charm, lots of exposed timbers. Open fire for the colder weather
