“I love Suffolk and all the delights it has to offer – living since a boy on the Essex-Suffolk border and spending most of my working career as a chef and restaurateur in this wonderful county.
There is so much to take in here on our doorstep – especially the architecture, striking landscapes and flora and fauna of charming East Suffolk. A recent survey of what was the nation’s favourite Suffolk things – www.suffolkicons.com -– received the most votes for the National Trust’s Sutton Hoo burial site (two miles from our front door), Adnams’ amazing Southwold beers came second (we have pints of those on draught!), beach huts were third and the Suffolk Punch horse fourth (the Suffolk Punch Trust is at Hollesley Stud, seven miles away), not forgetting the Woodbridge Tide Mill (just down the hill on the river Deben) in the top 20.
Maggi Hambling’s Scallop sculpture on Aldeburgh’s beach and Southwold Pier are just a leisurely drive away, perfect for a relaxing day out to paddle and work up an appetite. Woodbridge is well worth exploring, where else can you have your violin repaired whilst you stock up on Vivienne Westwood undies... Our urbane delights locally, the café culture and trendy boutiques sit alongside the quaint charms of the town’s1400 years of recorded history, the architecture and the relaxing riverside. I hope to welcome you soon so you can discover why we love living here”
