About us

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 operating seven days a week, stunning fishmonger’s counter, delightful delicatessen with lots of products made in the Cookhouse commercial kitchens, wine & beer merchant, greengrocer, grocery, chocolatier…

Since opening in May 2007, the Suffolk Food Hall has quickly established itself as an exemplar for local food. The business was started by Suffolk farmers who became frustrated that friends often had limited access to much of the fresh and locally produced food. The Suffolk Food Hall brings together the best local food and drink specialists and has a wide selection of luxury food, including an artisan bakery, traditional butcher, fishmonger, delicatessen and much more. Suffolk Food Hall has been judged by celebrity chef, the late Clarissa Dixon Wright and her panel to be the best Local Food venue in the UK and Ireland. The Cookhouse Restaurant specialises in traditional British cuisine with a contemporary twist. Focusing on seasonal recipes, it is a unique place to eat or have a drink whilst enjoying stunning views down the River Orwell.
