  • The Grapes: Very medicore

    by Richard_Hind Written Dec 30, 2013

    The owner was very rude and very uninformative, unknowledgeable and crass. The floor is always sticky. So can only imagine what the overall hygiene is like. The food was below average, wasn't even worth the cheap prices. A big let down overall. Used to be a lovely pub, many years ago.

    Favorite Dish: None.

    The Fox: Breakfast, lunch and dinner and bed

    by PrincessMonja Written Aug 8, 2011

    I wasn't quite sure whether to write this review as a hotel review, restaurant review or a nightlife review, as this place really covers all of these.

    It it a great pub that does lovely food, and uses local food and Fairtrade products. It also has rooms at the back of the hotel, which are around the car park (they have converted old barns) and they also have live jazz and other music in the evenings.

    Favorite Dish: Everything I've had here has been very good from breakfast (what a great place for breakfast - especially on a Saturday when the rest of the town is so busy and noisy!!) to lunches and dinner. They also do a great Sunday lunch and have a fab wine list. I'd quite like to more in actually!!

    I would advise booking, for dinner and Sunday lunch as it is very popular and can get very busy.

    The Fox in Eastgate Street Even open for breakfast!

    Zen Noodle Bar: Noodles anyone?

    by PrincessMonja Written Aug 8, 2011

    This is a very popular noodle bar with modern decor and tasty food.

    You write your own orders out on little order slips and pass it to the waiting staff.

    The portions are generous and it's a good place for a casual meal.

    Favorite Dish: I ate the Thai chicken curry and rice - not the most authentic tasting one I've had but very tasty all the same.

    Modern decor and funky lighting - cool!

    The Grapes: A nice pub with fair prices

    by Airpunk Updated Jan 7, 2011

    Among all the pubs Bury St. Edmunds has, this one is among those with the lowest prices while it has a friendly atmosphere at the same time. That means that main dishes are available for around 5 pounds. Look out for combo deals or buy two get two more free offers. As most pubs in the region (and especially at Bury St. Edmunds), it is a Greene King pub where you can sample this local, but well-known ale. It's the kind of pub I lve to see at the end of a day when I just want to relax and try a local ale.

    Favorite Dish: I had an abbot's ale and the cauliflower and cheese tart. Both were really good!

    Pea Porridge: Pea Porridge yum!

    by PrincessMonja Written Jul 5, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What a lovely restaurant, just what BSE needs!

    This restaurant has been decorated beautifully, it has a lovely atmosphere and friendly staff.

    I had the freshest bread, straight from the oven , it was delicious!

    Favorite Dish: At lunch time they provide a special menu with two courses for £11ish, brilliant! I went with a friend we were given tiny and very yummy little 'amuse bouche' of ham and pea balls with pea shoots, so tasty, this was followed by a goat's cheese fritter on a salad of apple, beetroot, beans and salad leaves - really fantastic.

    Our main course was grey mullet on a spicy cous cous with a cucumber and mint sauce, really lovely. We had bread and water with the meal, two glasses of wine, coffees and homemade truffles - all for £35.90 for two! Phone them NOW and book a table, you won't regret it :-) !!

    Strada: Old building - New restaurant

    by PrincessMonja Written Dec 19, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The most interesting thing about this restaurant has to be the building that it is housed in. Cupola House was a pub for a very long time - it was then sold by the Greene King Brewery and has been a bar/ restaurant and is now just a restaurant.

    The building is very old and has a lot of history (which I am hoping to find out about and write another tip on.)

    The Stada restaurant served some very nice Italian food, although the service isn't very good - but I'll be generous and put that down to the fact it hasn't been open very long.

    Favorite Dish: I had the pumpkin risotto - which was lovely. I also tried some of the tomato bread as a 'nibble' and that was delicious!

    The Angel Eaterie: Don't Miss the Venison!!

    by GandalfOnTour Updated Nov 29, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Situated in the foyer of the Angel Hotel, the Angel Eaterie is a top-notch restaurant not to miss!!! The food was superb, the service prompt and friendly and the wine was excellent. Most of the food is locally sourced and is fresh, fresh, fresh!! The selection of starters, mains and desserts is good and the wine list is extensive and there is basically something for everyone. The setting is great too, with the modern paintings and sophisticated design. All in all this is a great place to have some really good food and I think the high price tag is well justified in this case.

    Favorite Dish: The local Venison dish was simply stunning!!! Probably the best venison that I have ever had and I have had a lot of venison in my time.

    La Tasca: Tapas Restaurant

    by Suet Written Feb 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This looked good from the outside and from the inside too. I went there with four ravenous african women and we ordered tapas, lots of small little dishes which we shared. Slight snag was that despite ordering quite a FEW dishes, no one really felt full up. So we filled up on the house red wine which was rather nice!

    Favorite Dish: I love olives, particularly ones drenched in oil and spiced with peppers and garlic. The salads were good and all were freshly prepared.

    The Lounge: Land of Latte

    by PrincessMonja Written Dec 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In this age of the great American chain coffee shops we are lucky in Bury St Edmunds to have a homegrown, lovely local coffeehouse.

    The Lounge does the best coffee in town. The staff are frindly and helpful and it is alwys very popular.

    Favorite Dish: They offer lots of yummy cakes,scones and biscuits alongside sandwiches and soups at lunchtime.

    For breakfast they serve Bacon sandwiches, flatbreads filled with egg, sausage and cheese (my favourite!) and cinnamon toast. We often visit on a Sunday morning when a good cup of coffee and a bacon sarnie are welcome after a big night out! We sprawl on the sofas, read the Sunday papers and relax.

    The Old Cannon Brewery: Meet the Gunner's Daughter!

    by morgandk Written Nov 13, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Excellent British fare. Good local brew and a warm and friendly atsmosphere.

    Favorite Dish: Skip the smoke Salmon- but I did enjoy the garlic mashed potatos and you do get a fair-dinkum helping of vegetables and mixed salad. If you like bangers and mash, you should try the Gunners Daughter sausage, made with an local brew - the Gunner's Daughter!

    Maison Bleue: The Best restaurant in BSE

    by PrincessMonja Updated Sep 3, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a lovely restaurant that specialises in seafood, although they do offer meat and vegetarian dishes. It is also a French restaurant, all the staff are French and it feels like you've popped over the channel for dinner!

    The food is excellent and the presentation is lovely. It is a great place to visit for a special occasion, as it is a little expensive, although this depends how much of their wonderful wine you drink!

    Favorite Dish: They change the menu fairly regularly but there is always something great on. I love the fishcakes and the cheese board is fantastic.
