Chinese Chequers

Chinese Chequers

Great Chinese restaurant and take away

We have been to Chinese Chequers a number of times now and they are extremely consistent. The service is excellent and the staff are impeccably polite. The food is also excellent

It is a town-centre restaurant so is quite bright rather than quiet and cosy but the quality of the food is superb, along with the service as I’ve said. This is why we go there!

The Bildeston Crown

Bildeston Crown dining room

Fine country dining in  a stunning historic restaurant

A real treat located in the heart of Suffolk’s picturesque countryside, close to the wool towns of Hadleigh and Lavenham and perfectly placed for visiting the Dedham Vale and Constable Country, Gainsborough’s birthplace Sudbury and historic Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich, The Bildeston Crown is an original 15th century coaching inn, which was imaginatively renovated and refurbished in 2003

This restaurant and hotel is reputed to be haunted by several ghosts. There have been sightings of old people (not me!) sitting in bars, children that want to hold hands in one of the bedrooms and there’s a ghost of someone who hanged himself long ago in one of the rooms

The Auberge

Auberge

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
