How Do You Do Food and Drink?Food and DrinkFood and DrinkFood and DrinkFood and Drink

Forget the latest foodie fad or trendy diet, Suffolk is steeped in tradition and agriculture history and is home to world class food and drink producers. You're spoilt for choice as you stroll around and discover local vineyards, smokehouses and dairy farms, first class fish n chips and farmers' markets. And with an array of independent local cafés, bustling bake houses and cosy pubs, you'll find service with a smile all over Suffolk..

This independent gem in the middle of Woodbridge is owned by Harvey and his endearingly-nicknamed wife, Honey. Utterly passionate about great coffee and fantastic food, sourced locally and made on-site, the service is the friendliest in town.

 

Don't leave without trying the homemade pecan & apple muffin, and wash it down with their delicious signature coffee, which changes each season. And, their near-legendary afternoon tea is so lovingly prepared, you'll need to pre-order it.

 

This third generation family-run business originally opened in 1946. Nowadays this bustling bakery in Woodbridge boasts an incredible selection of hand-crafted breads and cakes, famously loved by locals. We spoke to the five siblings who run the business - David, Lindsey, Sera, Sophie and Andrea.

Heres what you need to Know...

Sit back and enjoy the gallery of local artists, take a seat in the garden (blankets are provided on chilly days) and keep an eye out for regular supperclubs, cocktail evenings and local music nights.

• The most popular loaf is the Adnams Sourdough, flavoured with local Suffolk ale.


•Everything is made on site, even the jam for the doughnuts. You won't find any preservatives or E numbers!

 

•Their scrumptiously good 72-Hour Sourdough Loaf is made using smoked walnuts. The three day process creates a toasty, caramelised crust with a subtle sweet toffee taste.

 

•Most of the baking processes are the same as they were all those years ago, and the age-old recipes are a secret… having never been written down.

If you like rubbing shoulders with, well, just about everyone, then don't miss a visit to Britain's smallest pub; The Nutshell in Bury St Edmunds. Certified by the Guinness Book of Records as Britain's dinkiest drinking establishment, the bar measures just 15ft by 7ft and is filled with nick-knacks, historical photos and odd artefacts. Originally billed as a Museum of Art and Curiosities, the bar starting serving in 1867 and has been attracting pint-sized crowds ever since.
