We have been going to the British Larder in Bromeswell (the old Cherry Tree pub) since it started – both my partner and I (fussy London folk who live part-time in wonderful Suffolk) would really recommend this restaurant.
There only a handful of restaurants in suffolk that compare in quality of food, atmosphere and service – don't get me wrong there are many good ones – but the British Larder is in a different league.
The owners care about locally produced and sourced food, they are both amazing cooks who enjoy to bring something a little different to the usual suffolk menu – but who also have some of the Suffolk classics you expect.
Yes – the building has been renovated and looks smart and comfortable but really it is the service and the food you go to the British Larder for.
We tend to visit most (well every) saturday, as a natural break in our journey to our Suffolk home for lunch. In winter this usually means the table next to the cosy wood burner, but this weekend it was in their large garden, sat in the sun, listening to the birds tweeting (not electronically!!)
Prices can be a little more than your average pub, but we find Saturday lunch very reasonable. We drank a glass of Rosé each, we had a bottle of still water, my partner has the salmon fish cakes (not like your usual fish cakes – 70% potato and 30% fish – these are packed with salmon with a touch of potato – really healthy and good value) I had the suffolk steak with local asparagus with their amazing chips (doesn't come with – thats just me with very little will power) – we shared the apple and rhubarb crumble with custard to finish.
Our meal cost around the £50 mark, which I was very happy to pay. The British Larder – Suffolk, I would say is one of my favourites and if you are looking for a country located restaurant, in a great area, with amazing food and great service I would recommend you give it a try – tell them you have been recommended by me (the guys who come every saturday) – they will love that. Happy Eating.
