*** now serving our WINTER MENU ***
FOOD IS SERVED FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY & MONDAY FROM 7pm UNTIL ABOUT 10pm, and SUNDAY LUNCHTIMES 12 - 3pm
All our food is made 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 Nossage rolls which are filled with a tasty blend of veg and herbs & served either hot or cold.. During winter we also serve the FREE FROM menu - see below.
Our SUMMER MENU includes a wonderful local Cheese Ploughman's (entirely local ingredients - even the butter!) featuring two local cheeses, a chunk of locally made 'trencher' bread, local chutneys & pickles. Our Sweffling pizza is made using sundried tomato pesto, Sweffling wild garlic pesto, local 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.
The popular Nossage rolls are locally made and filled with a tasty blend of veg and herbs - and can be served hot or cold.
We also offer cheese & pickle rolls - again all made using the above fantastic ingredients. During summer we also serve the FREE FROM menu - see below.
Our FREE FROM menu is available all year, regardless of the season. Our smoky bean stew is home made using Hodmedod's beans and peas which are locally grown, in a rich and smoky tomato sauce. The organic Vaal Dhal is made by Hodmedod's using locally grown fava beans cooked with a blend of mild and aromatic spices. Our cheatballs in spicy tomato sauce are home made using Hodmedod's beans and quinoa which are locally grown, and served in a mildly spicy tomato sauce. All the items on our 'free from' menu are made without meat, dairy and gluten.
SNACKS include local roasted & salted broad beans, peanuts, yummy Bombay mix, tasty crisps (from Brown Bag Crisps) and pork scratchings.
