When my friends or family want to catch up, this is the place we quite often end up meeting up at. It’s equidistant for most of us. Suffolk Food Hall. Because we can eat, the kids can play, then we can shop a little, look at all the plants, eat a bit more and then buy more food to take home.
Suffolk Food Hall has so many home goodies, gifts and yummy food. I want to share one of my favourite places around here – just in case you don’t know about it yet – or love it too and want to share this post with others.
Yesterday we had a very tasty lunch in the Restaurant. I had fishcakes. In fact, I nearly always have the fishcakes with butter bean mash because it’s so good.
The views out across to the Orwell River and Bridge are spectacular in every season. I love to watch the boats and cattle grazing, whilst we eat. It’s very relaxing. The windows of the Restaurant are huge, so you feel part of the vast land outside.
There’s loads of inspiration in the Home and Garden department, I love their recipe book selection too. Everything seems lovingly sourced.
As we are getting in to gardening and growing veg ( remember my VegTrug post ), I spend quite a bit of time wandering around the plant section, which is brimming with colour and floral aromas. The staff are really helpful.
The best bit for my girls is the big Jumping Pillow. Well, actually, we all quite like it. It’s by the ice cream hut. Needless to say, the two go hand in hand on a sunny day !
Recently, they did a cooking course there for a day. They loved it. Not sure how much chocolate actually made it home but they learnt a lot. There’s all sorts of courses – cake making, kitchen club, art and photography and many different types of cuisine workshops.
If you are a foodie – the Food Hall is somewhere you would need to put some time aside for perusing. It’s 8000 square feet of good quality, local produce.
They can always check out their website if you want to know more.
So, now I have told you about one of my favourite places to visit nearby. It’s only fair that you let us all know yours too ? ;) Please do leave me a comment or tweet me @lucylovesyablog.
