The playwright George Bernard Shaw reckons ‘There is no sincerer love than the love of food’…
If this is the case, then we’re certainly all loved up on The Suffolk Coast!
Weekenders and day trippers can look forward to indulging their appetites in some amazing eateries - cosy cafés, tearooms that tantalise the taste buds and fabulous fine dining restaurants…
Take a trip to the pretty market town of Beccles which nestles the beautiful River Waveney – here you’ll find unique and rather quirky little shops and eateries to satisfy both shopaholics and foodies!
Tywfords Café is always a favourite haunt for shoppers to rest their weary feet and recharge with a steaming Latte and perhaps a cheeky cream cake!
Be sure you stop off at the highly acclaimed Baileys Deli in the town centre before spoiling yourselves with a dinner at the riverside location of The Waveney House Hotel, the popular Wine Vaults or gastronomic Graze restaurant.
Traditional fish and chips will always be a favourite dish of The Suffolk Coast – and that’s because we do it so well, especially in Aldeburgh!
If you spot a throng of people lining the High Street in this quaint seaside town, the chances are they are queuing up at Aldeburgh Fish & Chip Shop!
Not only is this takeaway renowned for being one of the best fish and chips shops on The Suffolk Coast, but in the whole of the UK too. For some reason, they always taste so much better when eaten in the sea air along the prom…
Seafood lovers will not be disappointed with the delights of the beachside located Seafood Bar & Grill at The Brudenell or a slap-up meal in Brasserie Bleue at The White Lion.
Southwold is well known as the quintessentially English seaside town of The Suffolk Coast. Home to a close residential community, visitors and the odd celebrity or two – so it comes as no surprise that there are some rather exceptional eateries here too!
We challenge you to walk past the High Street based Two Magpies Bakery and Café without succumbing to the wafts of their award winning, freshly baked bread. But, make sure you leave space for a light lunch at Southwold Pier or The Crown gastro pub on the green before sneaking in afternoon tea at The Swan.
A visit to Woodbridge simply wouldn’t be complete without a trip to The Firestation Café Bar - A small café and bar serving delicious coffee, cocktails, snacks and rather impressively roasting their own coffee! Miraculously, the cafe turns into a bar at the weekends with loads of fab entertainment on offer including DJ's, quizzes & vinyl nights.
Right next to the Firestation is The Cake Shop Bakery which has been providing Woodbridge with award winning bread since 1946. Now in its third generation and after winning ITV’s “Britain’s Best Bakery” in 2014, it is a must-see if you are visiting The Suffolk Coast!
Recommended in the Michelin Guide, make sure you book a table at The Crown at Woodbridge. Start off the evening with a contemporary cocktail followed by a meal in stylish restaurant which focusses on using quality ingredients. Whether its local shellfish sourced from the River Deben or foraged herbs from surrounding hedgerows, head chef Luke Bailey and his team offer locals and visitors to the area a hearty taste of modern British cooking.
