Med-inflected cooking in characterful inn

The handsome timbered George dates from the 16th century and is rooted into the fabric of its ancient Suffolk village. There are beams and bare-brick walls, but the understated Farrow & Ball neutral shades and classy cream seats combine in a tasteful, modern interior. The kitchen deals in no-nonsense modern comfort food with big, bold Mediterranean-inflected flavours that keep a keen eye on the seasons. You might start with ballotine of quail partnered with foie gras parfait, poached grapes and truffled mushroom toast, and follow with turbot fillet with saffron and spinach risotto, crab mousse and squid ink. Pudding could be a deliciously summery elderflower pannacotta with wild rose jelly.
