There’s a growing interest in the local food scene in Newmarket with some top restaurants joining the fray when it comes to competing to catch the attention of visitors to Suffolk looking for top quality dishes.
To celebrate the British Food Fortnight, we’ve decided to put together a list of five restaurants worth paying a visit to when you’re in the area. With a busy October coming up during the upcoming sales at Tattersalls, we’d definitely recommend booking.
Based at the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art, The Tack Room prides themselves on the fact that they offer all day modern British dining. A popular spot with visiting to get breakfast and coffee after watching horses work on the gallops, a working lunch or for a sophisticated dinner experience.
Head Chef Adam Spicer is constantly finding ways to tap into a wealth of locally sourced, fresh ingredients to put together dishes that please the palate. Take in some of the racing themed decor as you sip a cocktail and unwind.
A change of ownership gave The Kings Head in Dullingham a new lease on life and it is now considered as one of the area’s best destination restaurants.
Work from famed local artist Jacquie Jones hangs on the walls and in the summer months, al-fresco dining is a must. With a new menu recently launched for Autumn, dishes like ballotine of pheasant & chicken, wrapped in smoked streaky bacon and sautéed pillows of potato & herb gnocchi with roasted chestnuts will warm the heart.
They boast that they offer ‘smart, contemporary dishes full of vibrant flavours’ and they certainly deliver on that promise when it comes to putting food in front of customers. This delightful eatery is open seven days a week and offers guests a menu that prides itself on supporting local farmers and breweries. They even serve up the famous Newmarket Gin. Word is that The Packhorse Inn is also worth visiting for Sunday lunch.
Offering a modern dining experience, Squires has earned itself two AA rosettes with a talented team in the kitchen.
With ingredients sourced within a 50-mile radius, Squires is another established eating spot that supports local produce in a big way. Described as eclectic, their menu offers a variety of dishes to appeal to a broad range of tastes whether you’re after a cut of Norfolk Rib-eye steak or fresh seafood.
A great way to start or end a night. Pop into The Rutland Arms Hotel and enjoy their swanky new Cheese & Wine bar. With a massive refurbishment planned, this gem of Newmarket’s High Street is being restored back to its former glory and offering foodies something to salivate over.
