As well as being blessed with countless pubs, restaurants and sites of interest, Suffolk is also home to a number of impressive fish and chip shops. Thanks to its proximity to the coast, visitors to our county are invited to enjoy some of the finest and freshest Cod, Haddock and chip shop chips you’ll find just about anywhere. To help you enjoy Britain’s favourite dish in Suffolk, we’ve rounded up five of the best fish and chip shops to visit when staying at Woodfarm Barns and Barges.
Despite its name, Flora Tea Rooms has established itself as one of the best traditional fish and chip cafes in Suffolk. Established over thirty years ago, this spot is only a twenty five minute drive from our Barges for rent and serves up a delectable range of chip shop classics. All of the fish and chip options at Flora Tea Rooms are cooked in rapeseed oil which is a healthier option of oil and suitable for vegetarians. The fish and chips are also cooked separately which means that they are able to cater for individuals who are gluten free by grilling their fish.
2: Aldeburgh Fish & Chips, Aldeburgh
Family run for over fifty years, Aldeburgh Fish & Chips belongs to one of Suffolk’s quaintest towns. Using the same methods now as they did back then, visitors are treated to truly traditional fish and chips. Only ten minutes drive from our Barges for rent in Suffolk, a takeaway from this fish and chip shop will be the perfect treat to round off a day out.
If there’s one thing better than a fish and chip shop, it’s probably a pub. It’s no surprise, then, that when you combine the two, you get something pretty special. Providing such a special setting in Suffolk, the Anchor in Woodbridge serves traditional fish and chip dishes alongside a fantastic range of beers and wines. This place truly does sell itself and it’s easily accessible from both our Barns and Barges.
Billing itself as “a traditional Suffolk pub with a twist”, the Crown in Stowupland is another standout pub offering traditional fish and chip dishes alongside a fine selection of real ales and beers. Only ten minutes drive from our Barns for rent, it’s safe to say that we’ve sampled their range many times and can confirm they are well worth checking out.
5: The Four Horseshoes, Eye
Complete with a thatched roof and sprawling beer garden, the Four Horseshoes in Eye is very much the quintessential Suffolk pub. What makes it particularly special, though, is it’s exceptional fish and chip dinners that can be enjoyed with a collection of local ales. Ideal for those looking to experience the best that Suffolk has to offer when it comes to food and drink, the Four Horseshoes is only fifteen minutes drive from our Barns for rent.
