The Gal­lop­ing Gourmets


If fab­u­lous food is your recipe for a gourmet get­away, Suf­folk has more than its fair share of venues, food and drink fes­ti­vals, ar­ti­san pro­duc­ers and fresh-from-the-wa­ter seafood sold at fish­er­men’s shacks to tempt the taste­buds. Thirsty? Then why not sam­ple Ad­nam’s finest brews and tip­ples in its home town of South­wold, where it makes not just ales, but award win­ning gins, whiskies and vod­kas? Greene King has its HQ in Bury St Ed­munds, while St Peter’s brew­ery is in Bun­gay. If you en­joy a drop of cider, then try As­pall’s Cy­der, from Ston­ham As­pal near Deben­ham

As ‘the foodie county’, Suf­folk has whole vil­lages and towns de­voted to ap­petite ap­peal, such as Or­ford, where you’ll find award­win­ning Pump Street Bak­ery, Pin­neys, the Crown and Cas­tle, and fish pie at the ‘no frills’ But­ley Oys­ter­age, de­scribed by The Times as one of the top 30 things to eat be­fore you die.

On the other side of the county, Laven­ham is a mag­net for food­ies, with award-win­ning Laven­ham Butch­ers, and Hadleys Ice Cream, as well as The Great House, serv­ing the finest French cuisine this side of the Chan­nel, and The Swan Ho­tel. There’s also a great farm­ers’ mar­ket in the vil­lage hall every month.
