Suffolk Herring Festival

Come along for a taste – in every sense - of the glory days of the Suffolk fishing industry.

Celebrate the annual autumn harvest of North Sea herring by Suffolk drifters manned by Suffolk men in jerseys and oilies.

While herring is not as familiar an item on the menu as it once was, you probably know whitebait, which is simply the herring young.

There’ll be a day-long outdoor barbecue of fresh-caught North Sea herring & bloaters, as well as the chance to try the famous Dutch soused herring (maatjes haring).

In addition to its regular menu, the Cut’s Café will offer a special menu celebrating more of the fabulous produce this region produces.

Expect to see some fishy silver darlings, rev up the apple press, hear some tall tales, tap your feet to some tunes and so much more as we celebrate the herring trade right here in Halesworth.
