award-winning  farm shop and restaurant


The Café in the Food Hall is open for both takeaway drinks and food items. 

Our gelato hut is now open for 2021, serving a range of flavours (and almost always a dairy-free option). 


Welcome to the 'Champion of Champions' for local food.

Suffolk Food Hall is delighted to be the best Local Food venue in the UK & Ireland as judged in the Countryside Alliance rural oscars comparing all winners from the last 10 years! As Suffolk farmers, we are proud to provide you with much of the fantastic food produced locally. A host of activities at Suffolk Food Hall ensure that you experience quality, local, food with all its provenance, in everything that we do.

There is all that you would expect from an internationally-recognised farm shop, and more... traditional carcass to customer butchery, scratch bakery, selection of fresh, pre-packed product from the fishmonger's counter, delightful delicatessen with lots of products in the counter made in Our Kitchen.  A wine & beer merchant, greengrocer, grocery, chocolatier...

Your enjoyment is extended with the Home & Garden department, lovely walks along the river in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a coffee in the Café... The Cookhouse houses a unique on-farm restaurant, function rooms for hire, as well as a series of other businesses... and don't forget the Pilates Studio, Orwell Fitness gym, the Field Fit obstacle course, hairdressers, beauty salon and cookery school too!

We're open seven days a week, just south of Ipswich, underneath the Orwell Bridge.
