Our Butchery has built a strong reputation from the quality of meat and the quality of service, particularly during the Festive season. The team break down and prepare all products on-site, with carcases from a local network of farmers for full provenance. At the heart of our offering is our own herd of Red Poll x Aberdeen Angus cattle; all of which comes through our butchery. Our Red Poll cows, the native Suffolk breed, have the right suckler (mothering) qualities and the Aberdeen Angus bull helps create the perfect beef you want. The team is on hand to advise, recommend and help wherever and however possible.

Come winter, the centre moves its focus to the range of local, fresh cut, Christmas trees which can ordered online. Elsewhere in the garden centre there are lots of plants, bird boxes, ornaments and more. Our Garden Centre has something for every garden no matter how big or small. Mel and others are on hand to offer advice and help get the best out of your garden.
Our Bakers do not actually start in the middle of the night! We want to make sure the bread and sweet treats you buy are as fresh as possible hence the bake team works in front of you through the day. All handcrafted and made with pride, be it a humble bloomer, foccacia, one of our speciality loaves, or a mince pie!
Our Delicatessen boasts an ever expanding product selection. We have cheeses from near and afar, delicious antipasti and an enviable range of charcuterie. Ready to eat pies, tarts, quiche and salad to name a few, are provided by Our Kitchen, operating from The Cookhouse. These are made in small, regular batches, using the best ingredients the Food Hall has to offer, by James, Aston and the OK team.
Our Greengrocer works closely with as many small and some larger local growers to bring seasonal fruit and vegetables to the Food Hall. Celebrating the seasons is hugely important to us, to enjoy the best produce on offer when it is exactly that; the best it can be. That said, our array has the 'must haves' you would expect all year round.
We have a chocolate counter, full of the wonders available from one of Britain's oldest chocolatier, Charbonnel et Walker. Alongside this selection, we have the handmade, simple flavoured range from Harris & James, based in Beccles.
Both counters allow the opportunity to hand select (and sample!) individual chocolates to make a box of treats. Enjoy each and every single one.
Our Food Hall is housed in an old converted cattle barn. It aims to bring together the highest quality items sourced as close to, if not in, Suffolk. From drinks, snacks and cupboard staples, to something a little different and almost everything in between, be assured that we have something for every taste.
Wine, Beer & Spirits
We have hand selected our favourite beers and ales from the plethora of small brewers in the local area. East Anglia is able to boast a great range of spirits and wines too, particularly a favourite tipple; gin. The local independent vineyards, such as Giffords Hall, Shotley and Copdock Hall, compliment our wines from around the world.
Our Gelato Hut is now closed for the Winter, ready to open up once again in 2021.
