Eating out

There are plenty of great local pubs and restaurants.  Here are a few of our favourites:

  • Main’s of Yoxford (1 mile away). Proud of using local produce and producers, Main’s of Yoxford is a family run restaurant with a great range of dishes for a relaxed weekend dinner. With a menu that changes each day to move with the seasons and availability, everything is cooked on the premises. Meat comes from local butchers who know the farms it’s sourced from, fish has been caught off the Suffolk Heritage Coast and fruit and vegetables are all from nearby farm shops. See: mainsrestaurant.co.uk
  • The White Horse, Badingham (5 miles away). There’s a relaxed and unpretentious feeling about this beautiful 15th century venue with wet boots and dogs actively encouraged in the bar. After a long walk in the country, try one of their Artisan sandwiches and a pint of real ale or cider, both of which are championed here in this free house pub. Portions are plentiful, children are welcome, there’s a choice of three roast meats for Sunday lunch and the village bowl’s green is part of the pub grounds. See: whitehorsebadingham.co.uk
  • The White Horse, Sibton (2 miles away). A genuine piece of Tudor history, The White Horse is a traditional pub that welcomes those wishing to dine or just enjoy a quiet drink in the 16th century surroundings. This is relaxed informal country dining where locals and visitors mix easily. The White Horse has built a reputation as a foodie destination and freshness is at the heart of the menus. Local fish, meat and even seasonal game from the shoot in Sibton are complimented by vegetables, herbs and fruit picked from their own pub garden. See: sibtonwhitehorseinn.co.uk
