Squaremeal Review of Maison Bleue ?

“The best service, manners, food and ambience in equal measure” notes one fan of Maison Bleue – in fact, everyone has a good word to say about this much-loved Suffolk restaurant. There’s a certain Gallic charm at work here: the decor is suitably bright and breezy, staff deliver “immaculate French service” and the kitchen “punches well over its weight”. Fish is the strong suit, so book ahead if you fancy gorging extravagantly on fruits de mer, or dip into the day’s haul for sparkling ideas such as seared Orkney king scallops with seaweed powder, scallop pannacotta and mooli or John Dory dressed with buttermilk, lemon confit and samphire. A few plainer ideas are also available, alongside some serious meaty contenders – think best end of lamb with rosemary, cumin, celery and courgette. After that, go for something sweet (perhaps pistachio cream with vanilla sablé and raspberry ice cream) or request the cheese trolley – we’re told it’s “the best ever”. And everything is brilliantly priced too: “an exquisite meal for two cost less than the visit to the cinema afterwards”, admitted one local.

    Maison Bleue is nestled away in a very old, idyllic part of Bury St Edmunds town centre. With its cobbled streets and Tudor style buildings, it feels as though the clocks have turned back in time. The smart restaurant looks very at home too, and rightly so considering its been here for thirteen years. Stepping inside reveals a cosy dining room and not a single free table in sight. The set lunch menu, which almost encompasses the whole of the a la carte menu will set you back a mere £24.50 for three courses. Part of that menu includes this starter of pressed beef and ham hock terrine, leek, piccalilli sauce, monks...
