Tuddenham Mill

High Street, Tuddenham St Mary, NEWMARKET, IP28 6SQ

3 rosettes

The old mill may have ended its grinding days in the 1950s, but its heritage remains intact at the present-day boutique hotel. For one thing, the stream that turned its waterwheel has been dredged of centuries of silt and is now a thriving wildlife habitat, while the majestic wheel itself, framed by beams and glass walls, forms a diverting centrepiece to the first-floor restaurant. Head chef Lee Bye is a country boy with an instinctive feel for the surrounding region, as may be seen in an opener of seared wood-pigeon with crunchy Roscoff onion, silky girolles and dazzling pumpkin purée, the dish unified with rich chicken jus. An alternative could be a little cauldron of plump mussels in St Edmund's ale, before the main business turns to stone bass in Debenham cider with seaweed butter and lovage, or well-rendered pink lamb rump with a yogurt-laced meatball ragout and pickled courgette. Texturally varied dessert enticements might take in sea buckthorn curd with Italian meringue, clementine sorbet and blueberries adorned with crunchy oats, or buttermilk pannacotta with pistachio granola and poached Discovery apple. Appetisers run variations on cauliflower cheese and pork scratchings, and the barley malt bread is not to be missed either.
