Pop Up Restaurant at Woodfarm House

Pop Up Restaurant at Woodfarm

The original Suffolk Pop Up Restaurant right here at Woodfarm

Having hosted the first ever Pop Up Restaurants in Suffolk, we are now making it a regular event. The next one is 7th, 8th and 9th November 2014

Michelin Star trained Chef Mark Peters will be returning with a menu to knock our socks off again, all for just £55 per head for six courses. We have no accommodation available that weekend as it all sold out on the morning we announced the dates! We do still have dining space though if you are within reach. It’s worth the journey! Check out the details from the last event and see what some of our diners had to say on the weblink

Shepherd & Dog

Shepherd and Dog Suffolk

A fine gastro pub in mid Suffolk serving some excellent food

Taken over and re-furbed in 2013, it now has a really nice interior with very comfy surroundings

A great menu, whether it’s a snack or a full on dinner, they have some imaginative food ideas and I’ve always enjoyed it in there. It’s not cheap but then they are not trying to attract that market!

They have a Bar, lounge and a contemporary eaterie. Check their website for full food temptations

Their smoked meats and fish are traditionally dry cured using maple wood.

The Beauty Barn Suffolk

Beauty Barn Suffolk

Exactly what you think this is! Beauty stuff. In a barn

Literally round the corner from Woodfarm, they have very kindly put together some packages just for our guests!

Debbie, the owner has had a good nose around Woodfarm to get a feel for what experience our guests have here, so she can understand what they would want from her and has put together some great ideas for those that love a bit of pampering (see below)

It’s even in our Take the Dog section as your pooch can sit and watch if they are well behaved!
