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.
Venture just outside Woodbridge to the village of Bromeswell and you will find The Unruly Pig; a gastropub which has been listed in The Good Food Guide, the Michelin Guide and the Estrella Damn Top 50 Gastropubs. The 16th century inn serves an a la carte menu featuring fresh, seasonal produce; sit inside in front of the roaring fire in winter, or sit out and soak up the sun in their beautiful garden (you won't find many pub gardens as stunning as this!).
Situated in the charming village of Ufford, The Ufford Crown is the perfect place to take the family for Sunday lunch. The pub, which is dog-friendly too, serves a cracking roast with a choice of Sirloin of Ketley Beef, chicken breast, Dingley Dell pork belly, duck leg or New Yorker rib of beef, accompanied by Yorkshire pudding, carrots, kale, green beans & gravy. The weekday lunch and supper menus are just as delicious, and there's an extensive wine list to accompany your meal too!
