One of the great dog-friendly pubs local to our Suffolk holiday cottages just got even better with a 10% off voucher so our holidaymakers can enjoy some great food, for less. The Moon & Mushroom in Swilland have sent us some vouchers that our guests can use on their holiday.
Dating back around 500 years, the Moon & Mushroom is a traditional old Suffolk Inn, with cask ales and fresh local food sourced from around Suffolk, using different farmers, suppliers, growers and gamekeepers. There’s always a fire going in the winter and the place is awash with colour during the summer months from their hanging baskets and tubs.
They always have a great selection of local Suffolk and Norfolk beers and they are members of CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale but please note the 10% discount is just for your food bill, not drinks.
As a sample of the sort of fare they serve to their diners, typical starters include such favourites as:
Leek and Potato Soup with Granary Toast
Brussels Pate with Granary Toast
Pan Fried Tiger Prawns with Sweet Chilli dip and Garlic Bread
Sample mains are such mouth-watering dishes as:
Mushroom and Stilton Suet Pudding
Smoked Haddock and Spring Onion Fishcakes with Peas and Chips
Classic Cod with Peas and Chips
Hand Carved Suffolk Ham, Free Range Eggs and Chips
Chicken, Ham and Leek Pie with short crust pastry
Suffolk Fish Pie with Salmon, cod, haddock and prawns
Venison and Ale Steamed Suet Pudding with Port Gravy
Thai Green Chicken Curry with Jasmine Rice
Slow Roasted Breast of Lamb with Lamb Croquettes and Redcurrant Gravy
Belly of Pork on a bed of Bubble and Squeak with Aspall Cider Gravy & Red Cabbage
Pan Fried Duck Breast with Cointreau Orange Sauce
Pan Fried Rump Steak with Chips, Peas, Tomatoes & Onion Rings
Sample puds include:
Crème Brulee with Fruit Compote
Date and Walnut Steam Pudding with Toffee Sauce and Ice Cream
Spotted Dick Steamed Pudding and Custard
Luxury Bread and Butter Pudding
I haven’t put prices on as they vary of course and you may be reading this way into the future but at the time of writing (May 2015) the starters are around £5 to £6, main courses average around £9 to £13, with the steak around £14 and puds under a fiver. Cheeseboard is around £6.50.
Suffolk pubs – a great choice for our holiday cottage guests
We are very lucky to have a wide choice of really good pubs within easy reach of our holiday cottages. I shan’t go into detail here as this blog post is about the Moon & Mushroom but if you have a good root around our website we recommend a real variety. But the Moon & Mushroom is a great one just ten minutes or so from our holiday cottages. It’s always friendly with great food and beer and now you can get a 10% discount it’s got to be even more palatable!
So do check out their website for more information and pick up your vouchers when you are staying in one of our holiday cottages.
