As well as being home to plenty of historic houses and landmarks, Suffolk is also home to an impressive range of vegan and vegetarian restaurants.
From classically inspired eateries to more chic and modern offerings, there’s an outstanding amount of choice when it comes to tucking into some meat-free dishes when you’re out and about in Suffolk.
To help you navigate the available options, we’ve rounded up a list of five of our favourite vegan and vegetarian restaurants to check out when staying with us at Woodfarm Barns and Barges:
- The Walnut Tree
Serving up some delectable dishes, the Walnut Tree in Thwaite is an exclusively vegetarian and vegan restaurant. Located in a grade II listed building, this beautifully styled eatery is only a ten minute drive from Woodfarm Barns. With open fires to bask in by winter and a dog-friendly bar to perch on in summer, the Walnut Tree invites guests to tuck into some mouth-watering daily specials as well as some seriously tasty real ales.
- The Vegetarian Red Lion
The Vegetarian Red Lion in Great Bricett claims that they have ‘won over so many carnivores since we opened in 2017’. And having tasted a selection of their dishes, we don’t doubt them. Only twenty minutes by car from our Barns for rent, the Vegetarian Red Lion has preserved all the charm of its historic pub setting and serves up a suitably appetising selection of risottos, mushroom wellington, and plenty of other delightful meat-free choices.
- Hank’s Pub and Food
Located in the heart of Ipswich, Hank’s Pub and Food is truly a one-of-a-kind vegan restaurant. Describing their offering as “vegan gastro”, Hank’s serves up tasty vegan burgers, pies, and currys. And if that wasn’t enough, the restaurant also specialises in locally brewed vegan beers and internationally sourced vegan champagnes. Only a short drive from our Twee Gebroeders barge for rent in Woodbridge, or from Woodfarm Barns, this place is totally unmissable for any vegans taking a holiday in Suffolk.
- Allison’s Eatery
A great excuse to get out to explore all that Bury St Edmunds has to offer, Allison’s Eatery is the town’s first plant based cafe. With breakfast, lunch, and dessert options available, visitors are invited to try a range of paninis, soups and ice creams. Committed to being as environmentally-friendly as possible, this restaurant serves up all of its products and refills in ethically sourced and sustainable packaging. Allison’s also sells vegan cooking and beauty products, too. Altogether, it’s something of a must-visit for all herbivores visiting Suffolk.
- Yurt Cafe Organics, Saxmundham
Yurt Cafe Organics in Saxmundham is only a short distance from our barge Onderneming in Snape. Priding themselves on providing “organic, healthy, nourishing, and downright delicious food that both tastes good and does good”, the cafe is unquestionably one of the finest organic restaurants in Suffolk. With both lunch and cafe menus available, we simply cannot recommend this spot highly enough.
