Brandon Road, ELVEDEN, IP24 3TP
Located on the Elveden Estate, home to a direct descendent of the Guinness family, this village inn has a relaxed and contemporary bar, several dining areas, and six luxury bedrooms. Expect a family-friendly atmosphere, blazing log fires in winter, a range of guest ales on tap, and a modern pub menu that brims with produce sourced from the estate farm and surrounding area. Whether eating inside, or outside on the large patio area, a meal could kick off with warm pigeon breast, silverskin onion, lardon and endive salad with red wine syrup; or caramelised onion and mature cheddar croquettes with red pepper relish. Then confit rabbit leg, sage and onion dauphinoise potato, roasted carrot and Dijon mustard sauce; wild mushroom, vegetarian parmesan and chive risotto; slow-roasted Suffolk pork belly, colcannon, sautéed greens and Aspall cider cream sauce. Finish with espresso crème brûlée; or sticky Guinness pudding with clotted cream and cinder toffee. Children can choose from their own selection of 'fawn-size' portions.
