A Foodie’s Guide to Suffolk’s Winter Cuisine
When it comes to romanticising winter, no one does quite so well as us Brits. Indeed, come the beginning of December everyone and their dog is talking excitedly about pumpkin-spiced drinks, wearing layers, drinking endless amounts of hot chocolate, tucking into hearty dinners, and staying somewhere that’s the very picture of cosy. At our Barns and Barges for rent in Suffolk, we’ve got cosy sorted. We’ve also put together a blog on the best places to get the best cup of hot chocolate, so we’ve got those sorted, too. As if this wasn’t enough, our proximity to a range of incredible restaurants means that it couldn’t be easier to track down a delicious and hearty meal during your stay. To whet your appetite, we’ve put together a shortlist of some of our favourite places to eat in Suffolk during winter.
Isaacs on the Quay, Ipswich:
Featuring glass “igloos” capable of accommodating up to eight guests at a time, it’s hard to imagine a more suitably themed location for a winter’s meal in Suffolk. With a dedicated Christmas food and drinks menu, you’ll want to book in advance to make sure that you don’t miss out on the chance to enjoy something special this winter.
The Northgate, Bury St Edmunds:
An essential visit for anyone staying at our Barns and Barges for rent in Suffolk, Bury St Edmunds is a town that combines a decidedly modern centre with more than a few historic sites worth seeing. When it comes to dining over winter, it’s certainly worth checking the availability of the Northgate. Complete with a canopy-covered terrace, this uniquely bohemian spot is ideal for a warm cuppa during a shopping spree or a long roast dinner at night.
The Weeping Willow, Barrow:
In addition to being a perfect spot for a ramble in the countryside, Barrow is home to the Weeping Willow, a spectacularly refurbished pub that features a fairytale-style garden for cosy outdoor Christmas time dining. With roaring fires both in and outdoors, there’s no better way to warm up and get yourself fed in Suffolk this winter!
The Sail Loft, Southwold:
If there’s one thing more romantic than a hearty meal in winter, it’s a hearty meal with views looking out across sand dunes and the sea. At the Sail Loft in Southwold, you’re able to enjoy exactly this kind of dining experience following a day strutting around the seaside town. Lovingly restored, this restaurant promises a warm welcome and treats guests to a delectable menu to tuck into around a comfortably furnished and strikingly fashionable interior.
