*** now serving our WINTER MENU ***
FOOD IS SERVED EVERY NIGHT (+ SUNDAY LUNCH) UNTIL ABOUT 10pm
All our food is handmade using local, fantastic quality, full-flavoured free-range ingredients
Our food is more a little something to compliment your evening rather than an extensive menu. Having said that, the food we do offer is of very high quality and mostly locally sourced.
Our WINTER MENU comes into play when there's frost on the ground - & then the eagerly-awaited Farmcafe pies return. These pies are handmade for us using local ingredients & then we heat them in our wood-fired range in the public bar. The tasty 'Hot Cheesey Trencher' (local cheese melted onto Trencher bread and topped with smoked paprika) is also a popular winter offering, as are the locally made free-range Scotch Eggs & Nossage Rolls (both served cold). If pies are low on stock we will sometimes knock up a batch of Smokey Bean Stew or Vegetable Chilli - both made using local ingredients and slow cooked in the range.
Our SUMMER MENU includes a wonderful local Cheese Ploughman's (entirely local ingredients - even the butter!) featuring two local cheeses, a chunk of 'huffer' bread (made using local ingredients and cooked in a wood-fired oven), local chutneys & pickled onion. Our Sweffling pizza is made using sundried tomato pesto, Sweffling wild garlic pesto, Shipcord Vintage cheese and a sprinkling of herbs. Small, but packed with flavour! Also available is the amazing Smokey Chilli pizza - with Stokes chilli jam & smoked paprika
Our tasty Pork Pies are made for us by the lovely folks at The Farmcafe - using Blythburgh free range pork. They are served with a pickled onion and some Stokes Sticky Pickle.
We also offer cheese & pickle rolls - again all made using the above fantastic ingredients.
SNACKS include local roasted & salted broad beans, tasty crisps (from Brown Bag
