Pure ro­mance

EADT Suffolk - - FOOD BITES -

After a pleas­ant Friday af­ter­noon drive to west Suf­folk, we ar­rived at Tud­den­ham Mill, a lux­ury boutique ho­tel, restau­rant, wed­ding and meet­ing venue near New­mar­ket. We were there for an overnight break – din­ner at the ho­tel and a stay in one of the new Meadow Nooks, ro­man­ti­cally set in 12 acres of meadow, next to the mill stream and a short walk from the mill.

The Nooks are rus­tic, yet of­fer all the in­dul­gence of a stay in the main ho­tel – a king-size bed, feather du­vet, ex­tra large pil­lows and fine cot­ton bed linen, Mis­soni dress­ing gowns, tea, fresh cof­fee, orange juice and home­made bis­cuits, and a lit­tle tip­ple of sloe gin for a night­cap.

The en suite bath­room has a walk-in power shower, exclusive ESPA toi­letries, and fluffy bath sheets. The Meadow Nooks also come with a smart Sony TV, Pure ra­dio with Blue­tooth and free Wi-Fi.

At din­ner we or­dered a bot­tle of Torea New Zealand Sauvi­gnon Blanc (my favourite) which came with a very mor­eish home­made bar­ley loaf bread and Lin­colnshire poacher’s but­ter.

For starters my part­ner chose smoked had­dock rarebit, baked ham and chives. It tasted amaz­ing. For mains, we both set­tled on High­land cat­tle beef, 28-day sir­loin, served with roasted bone mar­row, Madeira cream, tomato con­casse, chunky chips and land cress. Both were cooked per­fectly to our pref­er­ences. For dessert, we in­dulged in York­shire rhubarb baba, de­mer­ara ice cream and sweet wal­nuts – all to die for.

It was a su­perb ex­pe­ri­ence at Tud­den­ham Mill. So, if you’re look­ing for a boutique ho­tel and restau­rant with a dif­fer­ence, one that of­fers plenty of cosy com­fort in a ro­man­tic, rus­tic set­ting, this could be it.
